I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!! I'm piggy backing off my previous post about which fly line to put on my new allen reel. I went with the RIO Outbound Short. I know I had mentioned a line with welded loops because i like the idea of the convience but I'm a little nevous how well it would hold up if by some miracle I hooked a large fish like a bull red or a jack. Im considerdng cutting to loop and attaching a piece of mono with a nail knot to the fly line with a perfection loop on the other end for my loop to lopp connections. What do you guys do and has anyone ever had a proplem with a welded loop?
