    Arrow Glue to secure Braided Loops on Sinking Line

    Hi GUys

    What glue could I use to secure my Braided loops on my Sinking fly line?? I've secured the loop with floss but on youtube they recommend a dash of glue on top of that.

    They just say super glue but Im scared that the wrong glue might chow the line..

    Input would be much appreciated

    Cool

    Normal, standard super glue works well. I've used various makes and had no issues.

    Mark, what I would do (personally) is remove the "floss" (sorry ) then secure the braided loop with a nail knot (I use 12lb fluoro for that particular job), trim the strands of braid close to the nail knot, then massage some pliobond on around both sides of the nail knot to give it a more smooth ramp up over that knot.

    I sometimes use floss or tying thread to build up that little ramp area, and then some pliobond over that.

    As it dries, roll the pliobond area around the nail knot tightly between thumb and forefinger - comes up really neat and is very durable.

    Explained better than I can with pics etc by Dan Blanton:

    Now trap the braided sleeve to the line using a 10- to 12-turn nail knot just above where the line enters the braided core, using 10- to 12-pound-test mono. Trim the tag ends of the braid close to the nail knot. Coat the nail knot and the area were the end of the line enters the tag core with flexible cement such as Plyobond or Loop knot dressing.

    Apart from the whip finishing type securing etc etc the other guys have recommended. I personally find with normal superglue, though it does the job, the braid goes 'stiff' (no I haven't yet tried it on that part of my anatomy...)
    There is a flexible superglue available I know in the USA. I will try get the name overnight as I also want to experiment with this as perhaps a better option to normal superglue which sets hard on the braid and 'clanks' through the rod rings

    cheers,
    Chris
