    Do you prefer line to line knots or line loop connectors?

    Line to line knots usually.

      Depends. Flyline to leader i use loop to loop. Everything else is blood knots for the most part.

        Line to Line turns the fly over better without any loss of energy. If I'm chuck'n and duck'n or throwing big streamers the loop to loop is fine.

          I use the loop leaders just for ease of use. I agree w/ buckhunter on the line-line though.

            line to line, leader loops sink you're dryflys, can scare fish, and cause a "Hinging" effect in you're cast, resulting in you're fly smacking the water hard, which may scare fish.

              Loop to loop works fine for me most of the time. If hinging causes problems then I'll go line to line.

                  I use only line to line knots, I believe they give the fly a more natural looking presentation.

                    Like most others, Loop-to-loop with Line to leader. Then line to line the rest of the way.

                        I use both, but prefer the line loops over the knots, mainly because I can swap out a damaged line or broken leader quickly without affecting the rest of the system (backing, line, leader)

                          Line to line knots perform better, but the loop connectors sure are easier.

                              I haven't "packed in" anywhere to go hunting since maybe 1987. But I still shoot a deer every year. Though not over a feeder.
