What is your preference to attach your leader to the flyline?  What has worked the best for you?

Just curious

me -There's a season?

I nail knot a short section of heavy (20# or 25#) mono to my flyline, and tie a perfection loop in it.  I then use loop to loop for the leader.  Of course, I also use furled leaders that come with a loop in the butt end....

I am lazy.  Loop to loop for me.

I go with the nailless nail knott. I use the tool on the stream and make 6 loops of the leader across the tool gap.

If you snap it off the tool quickly, it forms a pretty clean wrap and smooth connection.

I use a 9ft tapered 6x leader and this works good for me.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Depending on the size of fly line I nail knot a piece of Maxima Chameleon .020" (25 lbs) or .017" (20 lb) to the end of the fly line. Tie a perfection loop to the other end of the Maxima about 4-6" from the tip of the fly line. Then loop tp loop connect the leader to the Maxima.

Silver
