Welding a loop in the front (or back) end of your fly line is a great skill to have. You can fix broken loops, add a loop to a line without one, or make a loop exactly the size you need. While most popular with the steelhead crowd, who make loops in their level “T” sinking tips, you can still apply this technique to most fly lines.
You don’t need much in the way of tools to create your own beautiful loops – just a heat gun with the ability to adjust the temperature, a hooked needle, some heat shrink tubes that have a shrink ratio of 2:1, and about 5 minutes of time.
In Case You Missed It…
In this link to the previous RIO Fly Fishing Tip Simon Gawesworth explains and demonstrates why you should change your stance when casting – particularly when switching from the need to make an accurate cast, to that of a long range distance shot.
