Barrio fly lines do not come with factory welded loops. We usually use Roman Moser Minicon Braided Loops for our fishing, these are available to order with your line and are very easy to fit. For improved presentation in lower line weights, we prefer to fish with a simple knot connection like the Constriction Knot, or Nail Knot. You can see how to tie the Constriction Knot on our 'Knots' page.
Must confess that I have never liked welded loops, I simply find them unreliable.
But, I often receive requests for them and decided to offer a Custom Welded Loop Service on a trial basis.
I am using heat shrink tubing as an integral part of the welded loop, it feels much stronger this way and should hopefully prove more practical.
You can order a 'custom welded loop' to be added to your Switch and Spey lines ..... and I will do this for you before I post your parcel.
Price is per single welded loop and I hope you find this service useful.

The custom welded loop service is a great idea.
During the years of my fishing experience I never had any problem with a welded loop.
Nowadays fly lines are provided with loops on both sides and this is very convenient for exchanging lines. A quick change can be done by a large backing loop. The reel or the line (coiled up) can simply pass trough it.
