Braided Fly Fishing Line to Leader Loop Connectors
Save Time & Frustration
I have tried several methods for connecting leaders to the fly line, but this is the best. Tying a knot directly to the line tends to pick up vegetation because it's never quite as smooth as you need it to be. The "nail" adds a slight weight that can affect your presentation. This is the best of all worlds. It's fast, easy to use, and gives you the best performance of all the options.

Need this on both ends
These work very well. Slinkied onto the line I also use crazy glue and a shrink tube over the frays at the end. Higly recommend in sinking or underwater applications. Dry fly fishing is better served by knotted joint to avoid any hinges that may form. I love these and connect my backing on big reels as well to avoid any knot failures especially on tarpon or kings.

This item is not as other reviewers have described. I got the 6-8wt loops and tried to use on a 7wt line. The shrink tubing will not go back down and over the fly line. After over an hour trying to get this to work with the 7wt line I used some 4wt flyline just to see how it would work with that. The tubing will go down over the flyline but using a light bulb would not shrink the tubing. I even tried boiling water but with the same result.
Bass Pro Shops refunded the purchase amount, thanks Bass Pro. But stay away from this worthless product.

Worked great for me.
Read alot of reviews about this product not working as described. A few months ago, I had never seen one of these, and while on a fishing trip in the mountains, a friend handed one to me, and took approx 3-5 mins, on the side of the river, with a lighter, to rig. I do agree, that you must be very careful, as a light will melt the line, if not done properly, but, as the title says, ...It worked great for me.
