How big a game we talking about? I've landed bluefin to 30+lbs using a triple nail knot loop in the fly line attached to a 50 turn bimini and double surgeons loop in the gel spun backing. For bigger fish (I have yet to accomplish this feat) I really like the First Light Anglers rigging technique which utilizes hollow dacron looped sleeves on both ends of the fly line. You can buy their Bluefin video for $20 and it includes a rigging demonstration after some great action footage.
