Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Stonefly nymph Haven't fished with it yet, but based on reviews and the Missouri Hatch Chart it was a no brainer to purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the market = Orvis Braided Loop Connector I've been using Orvis Braided leaders and Loops for over 40 years now and they are GREAT. I've tried other brands and they don't measure up to the Orvis brand. Keep up the good work. Sare - St. Louis Missouri - yes - we have trout in Missouri

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your killing me smalls Seems fish in my area are extra aggressive towards this pattern. Do yourself a favor a pickup a few in every size. You won't ever complain that you have too many.
