Video: How to Attach Fly Line to the Backing on a Reel

As with many things in fly fishing, there are multiple ways to attach fly line and backing on a fly reel, and I enjoy learning the different methods that experts use. Previously, we’ve featured the Albright Knot, which is especially useful if your fly line doesn’t have a welded loop at the back. For lines that do have a welded loop, you may need a different approach. In this video, Joe Rotter from Red’s Fly Shop demonstrates his time-tested way of creating a large loop in the end of the backing to marry with a loop at the back of the fly line. Particularly interesting is the way he ties two surgeon’s loops and leaves a short tag end on the lower knot to use an indicator of where the junction is when he whole line is out beyond the rod tip.
