Fly Line Loop

I like the "double catch" loops made from 50# Gudebrod braided mono. You can find the info for making these on Dan Blanton's website under the Tackle & Techniques section in an article called "Getting Looped". My next choice are the Kevlar braided loops made by Cascade and available at many flyshops.

Gracie's Dad, I don't think you butt material is to heavy.
40# Maxima should measure .024 and is what all my customers that use Maxima (which is just about everyone) buy for spey rod leader butt although they are using Clear or Chameleon which is a little stiffer than Ultragreen. A few guys are using knotless tapered leaders that are .026 for the butt section. In my opinion if your line has a mono core you will be better off with an end loop. What Bob says is true about getting the loops smooth and even.
