I wanted to ask this on a couple of different forums here and PNW steelhead. Using 30# dacron should I expect any issue threading my flyline into the backing rather than using a knot? Not that I get much of a chance to see the knot rattle thru the guides. However, if I thread 3 or so inches wrap the end and zap the threads I would think would be as strong and any reasonable knot? it would also be a smooth transition from backing to flyline.
