This is the fifth in a five-part video which will demonstrate how to completely set up a fly reel from the arbor all the way to the leader. This video is brought to you by The Itinerant Angler, http://www.itinerantangler.com. A full-length version with all five videos in one 15:00 movie is also available.

You'll learn the Double Surgeon's Loop, a new arbor knot, the Nail Knot, the Perfection Loop, and the Loop to Loop connection. The full video is 15 minutes long, so if you're only interested in one part, skip down.

If you're doing this for the first time, you'll need the following items: (1) your trout reel, (2) a spool of "backing" (for trout, 20 lb. test is typically plenty), (3) a fly line, (4) some 20 lb. monofilament (I use Amnesia, which is red), and (5) a tapered leader.
