Assuming you have a reel....


(reel) <- backing <- fly line <- leader <- tippet <- fly

backing - braided nylon or gelspun tied to spool with ARBOR KNOT

fly line end with sticker tied to end of backing with ALBRIGHT KNOT

fly line other end tied to leader with NAIL KNOT or LOOP CONNECTION

leader to tippet with BLOOD KNOT or LOOP CONNECTION

tippet to fly with you choice of terminal knot
