     A Braided Loop Connector or Slip-on Loop Connector is a device that looks somewhat like a Chinese Finger Cuff in that it consists of very thin diameter monofilament woven into the shape of a tube with a loop on one end. It is attached to the end of the fly line by inserting the end of the fly line into the open end of the tube and then working it up the fly line until the end of the fly line meets the base of the loop. Then, a small section of shrink tubing is slipped over the loop and slid up and over the tube and fly line until it covers the frayed end of the tube. Then, the shrink tubing is heated to cause it to shrink and thus hold the frayed end of the Loop Connector in place. Then, a Perfection Loop is tied in the end of the leader butt and the leader is connected to the fly line via a loop-to-loop connection which makes it very easy to change leaders on the stream.
