    Double grinner Tam, tightened up nice and slow.

    Have had my full line and leader "singing" whilst tightening up on a snag and the knots and rings have always held tight.

    Riverge reccommend a five turn blood knot with the ring packet. For fine tippet material I initialy pass the line through the ring twice, then after four turns pass the tag end through both loops.
    I think I saw it on a course fishing video. It works well

    I have been using leader rings for salmon and trout for many years. A tucked half blood knot has never let me down

    All I'd say is whichever knot you use, the merest smudge of quality water proof super glue such as Zap a Gap will seal the knot allowing you to trim the tag end flush thus avoiding any fankle inducing stubby ends.I've never had any problems with this approach at all.

    Hi.
    I've just gone through all my tips and attached 3mm Riverge rings.
    I used a Uni knot and then a tiny drop of Fishing super glue.
    The problem I found was that the exposed mono core is short and stiff, but with a bit of
    spit and forceps it was doable (is that a word?).
