Didn't see your post. A few years ago, the Whitlocks were the speakers at our local TU banquet. Emily taught a casting class in which she showed us the Line to Leader connection. Someone asked the very same question, and she explained that orange Zap a Gap was the ticket and that Super Glue wouldn't hold the connection. I never tried any other adhesive so I can't say, but I was just repeating what she said.

Yes, but a totally different product that is made for totally different applications. Super Glue still might work, but it most likely will not. I'd be curious to find out, but not on my own fly rig.

How quick does it cure ? I saw on the website that it can take up to 24 hours , but they have the quick drying stuff too.

Interesting. I had no idea. I usually try to break the connection with my hands within a minute or so. Guess I shouldn't do that.

I actually like the new welded-on loops that are coming standard on a lot of new flylines. Some people seem to despise them, but they have done great for me.

Tying nail knots has got to be one of my least favorite things in the world. \:\)

Hey Gil - I've been using Super Glue instead of Zap-a-Gap for fly tying. Am I out of bounds?

I use Super Glue for tying too.

I swear. Madame Whitlock went into detail about how Zap A Gap fills gaps, and you create tiny gaps in the tippet when you sandpaper it, thus why you have to use Zap a Gap, the orange kind specifically.

I don't give a crap if you use a staple gun. \:D

I used to use the loop to loop connections all the time but stopped. Can't recall why. I still use the perfection loop for some conventional saltwater applications (namely to tie a hook on a tarpon rig), but again, I have no idea why.

I'm embarassed to say that I've never tied a nail knot. I guess I want the guy behind the counter to feel needed. Or I don't friggin' know how! \:D

I wish that guy had been in my boat when my trolling motor ate my fly line.
