Fairly new to Fly fishing , so be easy.
What type of knot do you use when tying the leader to the fly line.
Does anyone ever use those barbed eye inserts ?
When fishing for bluegill and panfish I have just tied a loop in the fly line and attached the leader to it, as if it was an eylet, they don't seem to mind. In the past I have always caught my trout on spinners or bottom fishing with bait.
Last year I made myself only take my fly rod to trout fish, after (5) small white bass I finally caught my first rainbow. I think I would have had better results with a clean knot at the leader.
Recently I began tying my own flies. Nymphs patterns have come much easier to master than drys.
