The Perfection Loop
This is a knot for forming a neat loop on the end of the fly leader, as
The Perfection Loop is a reliable leader loop which lies in
line with the leader. The loose end can be trimmed very close to the knot.
Not as difficult as it seems at first sight.
Use the thumb and forefinger of the left hand to grip the
knot while manipulating the loop with the right hand.
