just curious...for those cutting the fly line after tying a nail knot, what do you apply to the fly line after you cut it so it doesnt get water logged and start to sink?

I put a small drop of Superglue on the knot including the stub end of the fly line, and then wick it off with a paper towel. This seals the open end of the fly line.

I've done the superglue thing before. Usually, I use a touch of head cement. Dab on the end of the fly line, and cover the knot to smooth it out some for going through the guides.

Whatever you use, it's gotta be viscous enough to set up around the knot, and not just run off before it dries.

Good tip! In all these years, I never thought to seal the end of the fly line... makes sense now.

I don't like loops so I also cut them off and tie the leader on with a nail knot. I have always sealed the connection with super glue. It seems to work just fine.
