Hi Tony,

The Twisted Leader creates a loop at each end. If your flyline has a welded loop, you simply attach the Twisted Leader, Loop-to-Loop.
If you do not have a welded loop, add a braided loop, and attach the Twisted Leader loop-to-loop.
Simple, easy, and all knots are tied with the heavy butt material. The fuse is the single strand loop, where it connects to the butt section. With 17# test, it will break around 20#.
If you are hung on the bottom, or about to be spooled you want the ability to break off the leader without too much strength.
