I was just about to post a new message about loops and the butt section of the leader at the flyline, when I saw this post.
I'm using 30 lb. RIO MAX and the loop at the end has this huge rock of a knot,
that I find less than desirable.
I was thinking of possibly putting just an overhand knot in the leader, sliding a braided loop over and glue/nail knotting it in place.
But with out even trying I can see the big "hopper leg" bend I am now creating just in from the loop.
