Hi Garrett

The nylon loop to loop conector is very convenient but not great for floating lines since it tends to trap water and micro algae and sinks the tip of the line.Here is what I do.Take a 1x or larger mono leader and attach it to your fly line using a nail knot or nailess nail knot (much easier but needs a special tool to do) then tie a perfection loop in the leader about 3 inches down from the nail knot and trim the excess and voila' a water resistant loop to loop connector (mono will eventually absorb a little water) that helps to turn over the fly as well

Good luck
