Make loops on fly lines

Make loops on fly lines for easier leader attachment.
By making a loop on the front end of the fly line you can easily attach your leader to it - either by using a loop to loop connection or by tying the leader butt to the loop.

Make the loop by stripping 3 centimeters or 1.5 inches or so of coating off the line and pulling the inner braid "into itself" through the side of the braid. Use a metal bobbin threader for the purpose. Cover the base of the loop with Aquaseal or a similar substance and let cure before using.
