    How to attach a loop to the end of an Airflo Skagit Sinking T-7 Tip 10ft Custom

    I just purchased the above Sinking Tip. It has a loop at one end only. How do I make a loop at the tippet end. I`ve seen on You Tube two methods, one method used a nail knot and Maxima monofilament to create a loop, and the other used a braided loop, superglue, and shrink tubing. The diameter of...

    McCormick's Shrimp from Trout and Salmon

    One of the most popular and deadly flies on my local Donegal river. A McCormicks on the dropper and a Bann special as the tail fly, a great combination. You can leave out the claret hackle in the tail and it fishes just as well. A McCormicks tied on a size 12 double hook. Took 2 salmon on this...

    Attaching a polyleader to the end of a Rio Scandi ShortVersitip line?

    Maybe this question has been answered before. I have just bought the above line in #8. I attached the 23ft head to my running line, and then attached the floating 10ft versitip to the head. Do I need to attach a polyleader to the end of the versitip before I attach my leader and fly, or do I...
