Hi Peter,

I thought you had done a great job of sharing information so far but this will get anyone making their own loops. All of this has been a great contribution to this sites info base.

Regards,

Ard

Hi Peter, I have long been a scandi fan and followed your hooked4life for years. Your new instructions on welded loops is the best I have ever seen. I spend several hours a day custom welding lines for Meiser and Anderson, you understand and explain the process extremely well, I appreciate that you have shared it. Hope we can meet some day. stevegodhall@charter.net

Thanks everyone:

Here's the promised video after a lengthy wrestling match with Youtube over formats.

http://www.hooked4life.ca/welding/we...ing_movie.html

I'm working on the second video at the moment and should have it up by this evening.

I was, this morning. Out at 7:30 looking for some late spring fish. We only hit bass and walleye, though we did see one chromer caught so they're still in the river.

Very nice video by the way

Hey, every once in a while ya just have to go slummin' with the plebes.

Next one is up on connecting running lines:

http://www.hooked4life.ca/welding/co...ect_lines.html

Three more in the pipeline:
  • making a butt end loop
  • welding a tip loop in T material
  • joining T material to fly line

Should be done by Wednesday unless I have to go fishing . . .

Thanks for another great post, Peter. The fact that Steve G also thinks so is the frosting on the cake! I've seen his welds(and used them)and seeing your tutorial really makes me want to give this method a try.
