Thanks Carlito. I'm going to try the Ray Ball knot as well. Tying any knot at home in the recliner is much easier than tying even the simpliest knot with trout rising!

You have to put the fly on first, before you start the loop.
It had never occurred to me to use the surgeons loop for tying on a fly. Thanks, amigo.

I wish I could say it was my idea, but someone showed it to me. It works great by allowing the fly to drift more naturally.

Seems to me it might be pretty strong too. Have you ever used it with spinning tackle (like fishing a Rapala or buzz bait)?
