A friend showed me a trick to fix this problem 8 yrs ago.

1) Take a larger diameter needle and insert into the fly line about an 1/8” or so to hollow out the tip.
2) Rough up the butt section tip of the leader with fine grit sandpaper or scrape with knife or razor blade.
3) Put a drop of gel type superglue on the butt section of leader.
4) Remove needle from fly line and insert glued butt section.
5) Press the glued area firmly together for a few minutes.

I was skeptical that the leader would pull out but it has never pulled out. My friend uses this on all his rods and fights steelhead on it about 10 trips a year
