    Ya, I just started doing it this year because of the article I read in Flyfishing & Tying. I posted a quick explantion of the article above, anyways it seems to work really well and a lot cheaper. The one thing about it is not to tie a loop off the fly line because it creates a hinge and doesn't allow the leader and fly to react correctly.

    My leaders are only 2 feet long, so I don't bother tapering them :thumb:

    Awesome fish, btw.
