Thanks Paul. The weekend approaches. I have a Rio 9' leader as mentioned. The butt section is much heavier and with the help of a micrometer can be trimmed to taper nicely to the fluoro tippet.

I use perfection loops to attach the butt to the flyline. This might be a bit bulky with the heavier leader?

Hi Rowland, yes it isn’t and will get stuck in the rings if you strip it to there while retrieving or fish playing. A 2.5-turn Needle Knot is the slimmest and what I use 90% or the time.

Cheers Paul
