RE:Attaching leader to flyline - another query...
Pete- On my saltwater lines I use the loop system a la Lefty and I've never had a problem. Just keep the loop about 1/2 to 3/4 inch long and there isn't alot of splash. You do have to inspect the loops occasionally because the leader might cut thru the coating. On my freshwater line I go withc the nail knot to eliminate any splash. The formula I use for the mono at the butt of my leader or the loop attached to the flyline itself is .67 times the measured(micrometer) diameter of the tip of the fly line. This has worked for me. rel
