Thanks, Juro.
I've followed Penguin's amazing ties on the Forum and Bear's Den carries three makes of resin. I'm looking for opinions about which make people prefer before I invest.

I take about 10" of braided mono, as per Juro, 30 or 50 lbs depending on the flyline size. Singe each end to stop it fraying. Double one end over to make a loop of the size you want (you may need a...

Exactly. Flies look much the same in water as in the air - as long as they are not moving. Once you swing them in a current or retrieve them, they slim down (and wiggle).
