This week’s blog we will be discussing a Loop Versus a Needle Knot.
Most fly lines now come with a loop built into the forward part of the line. This is very convenient for connecting your leader with a loop to loop connection. Therefore I use this on my seven weight smallmouth bass outfit. However, on my trout outfits for lines two to three in the East and lines four to six in the Rockies, I attach my leaders to the fly line with a needle knot. I coat these with three very thin coats of Pliobond. I prefer the needle knot on my lighter outfits. It slides through the guides easier than a loop to loop line connection.
