Flyline to Polyleader Connection

here's a couple of links on making line loops- http://thelimpcobra.com/2012/04/07/fly-line-end-loops-with-the-tie-fast-tool/ http://thelimpcobra.com/2012/09/05/making-a-blind-splice-line-core-loop-to-loop-connection/ (borrowed from Viking Lar's article here on SL) http://thelimpcobra.com/2012/06/08/...

For the love of Water

merci Peter ! :)

since water is always in constant movement, to reflect this, the gallery will be an evolving platform.
