I am looking for a good, easy knot to tie a sink tip to a leader...... What do you use?
Hey genius, you are typing so you must be right and of course I'm wrong. I might have "missed the question", as usual, but I've got an awful lot of Rio Versitips that have a loop to line end and a blunt terminal end where you NAIL KNOT the damn butt end of the LEADER to the SINK TIP. I also have some custom cut tips from Airflo that, once you custom cut them to the length you want, the instructions say to NAIL KNOT the butt end of the tapered leader or level line. If we are talking poly leaders in various sink rates then I'll say the only ones I've used are sinking material over a mono core that is exposed at the tapered end. To this end I use a double surgeon's knot instead of a nail knot.As usually Mumbles missed the question.
Most Sink tips come with a loop on the big end. What I used to do is at the fly line where the leader attaches. Cut back what is nailed knotted on and tie a loop, that way you will have a loop to loop connection. It's not pretty but it works.
