Tapered Leader to Fly Line Connections:
Most fly lines now come with a welded loop at the tip, we find the best way to attach your tapered leader is to tie a perfection loop (click here for tying instructions) in the butt end of your leader, and then use a loop-to-loop connection to attach it to your fly line. This way has the added advantage that should you wish to change your leader (for a longer/shorter/thinner one), then it's simply a case of loop-to-loop connecting the new leader.
Should your fly line not already have a welded loop on the tip, then our favourite way to attach a tapered leader is with a needle knot (click here for a fantastic demo of the Needle Knot).
