    Great Video, just one question, After you put the fly line into the centre of the braid and worked it through did you pull a sleeve over both the braid and the fly line?

    If so where was the sleeve to start with? I have purchased airflo braided loops which come with seperate sleeves and im a bit confused (fly fishing noob)



  8. HMFlyFishing says:

    the sleeve is usually already on the braided loop but if not pop it on and push it up to the base of the loop its self.
    When you thread the line up in to the braided loop then slide the sleeve down to almost the bottom of the braid and trim off the ends. The sleeve will then sit at the end of the braid and if you dab a little super glue top and bottom it isn’t going anywhere.. I hope that helps. thanks for watching.

    Regarding the Roman Moser Minicon Trout loops, are they properly secured from the factory or do they need superglue as well on that particular section?
    Thank you for the great videos!
