The website (below) has a very comprehensive, technical review of the most common fly line to leader connections. It was authored by a New Zealand fly fishing guide, now guiding in Southeast Asia.

I recommend taking a look at it.

Happy Fishing,

Arnold

I have always liked the welded loop attachment. I have never had an issue with that type of connection, but the leader link near the bottom of the page has my interest. I have never heard of those before, and reading about them sure has my attention.

Thanks for sharing.

Here's basically how I do all mine. You have to replace these each year, but I've never had one fail, and the link is super smooth.
