Connections For Silk Line
I just reveived a new silk flyline for my Bamboo rod. Right now I am going through the process of greasing it prior to starting the break in process.
My question is:
What are the recommended knots/methods used for flyline to leader connections for silk lines.
I have read that the traditional nail knot will cut into silk....unfortunately.....no alternatives were suggested.
I am thinking of making a small loop in the end, tying it off with silk fly tying thread, and coating with Pliobond. This will let me use aloop-to-loop connection.
I would really appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks in advance.
