    Dont use braided loops .......!!!! They suck for big fish and also create a v on the surface. Use a uni knot to tie the but section to your fly line. I use 30lb Flourocarbon with a uni knot to the fly line and a perfection loop on the tippet end.

    Ooooh, I would tend to disagree about braided loops.

    For anything from a 10wt and above, I will only use braided loops. Mind you I am not talking about the crappy 5cm long ones that you can buy, I'm talking about making my own 25cm long loops that have no less than 15cm of flyline stuffed up the core and a nailknot with 10lb mono holding it in place.

    Never lost one yet or had one pull off.

    The only reports I have heard of when loops have pulled off, have been from the bought ones.

    For all estuary fishing, skipjack, leeries etc .. you don't need braided loops.

    Ja I realise that. I saw the last post on page 1, and thought it was the end of the thread. Luckilly I looked again as I was already packing my stuff to head down to Sandvlei. I thought, jeez , leeries in the rain.....well.
    I might just head down there anyway...have a few hours to kill.

    We've been monitoring it. I hate to tell you you'll be wasting your time, but, who knows, you may just strike it lucky

    I agree with Jono........ All the Flycastaways boys fish braided loops, homemade ones, and these guys put more pressure on big fish than anyone sle on the planet.... watching Arno, Gerhard or Keith punish a GT is unreal... these okes take no prisoners, give no line and work these fish HARD... and they use braided loops.... Definetly the way to go in my opinion... but as Jono said, make them yourself, and make them LONG!
