pescaphile Doesn't a versa-tip line already come with a loop and a set of tips with loops?

Simply tie a short section (6") of leader butt material to your tips with a nail (or needle) knot and tie a perfection loop at the end to attach your leaders.

Fred Krow I would advise not using Zap-A-Gap. The fly line adjacent to the glue will crack very quickly.

Loon Knot-Sense is more flexible and does not cause the fly line to crack so readily.

jack keller #'s 1 and 2 have worked well for me but i like to use knot-sense on the nail knots. the stuff is strong but brittle so you can break it off if necessary and recoat.

Loop Advice

This is my first question in the forum. I just purchased Rio Versa Tip 8 wt line for use in Salt. I'd like to add a loop to the fly line between the line and the tip; and also a loop to the end of each tip (to connect tip to leader). These are the options I know of. Would someone please offer advice as to the best method? Thanks

1) Nylon braided loop secured by two nail knots covered with zap a gap.
2) Double fly line over in loop and secure by two nail knots covered with zap a gap
3) Tie a 20 lb mono line with nail knot and then tie a non-slip loop knot to the end
4) Tie a simple surgeons knot in the fly line.

I'm fairly new to fly fishing and have learned alot by reading this forum. Thanks in advance for any help.
