I came up with a new way to tie a dropper on. At least I think its new cause I've never seen anyone do it before. For the top fly I thread it through the eye, bring the end up and tie an overhand knot at the eye, then do the same for the second fly and then tie clinch at the end. I thought it would be hard to undo the knot to change rigs, but surprisingly a small bobbin needle easily undid them. The fly doesn't slip and not having to tie two knots at the eye and bend of the hook is probably more secure. Didn't seem to make a difference that the fly was sticking out from the line and didn't have any more tangles than usual. Has anyone else tried this, it really saved time for me. I use a 6x tippet, a 7x might get too tight to undo. O0
