How to tie a Dropper Loop Knot
Loop is one of the most amazing
Popular Fishing Knots. Every loops I am creating on the
fishing pools for deep sea fishing is the only a Dropper Loop Knot. I
am attaching a hook on this loop, a weight a lure or a jig, or
satellite hook. It is the most reliable Loop Knot with the strength
that is closer to 100% of the fishing line or rope
itself. The Dropper Loop Knot is a type of loop knot often used on
multi-hook fishing lines. It can be created in the middle of a long
line and forms a loop which is off to the side of the line. The
Dropper Loop creates a loop that stands out at right angles to the
middle of a length of line. It can be used in your leader or tippet
to provide an extra attachment point for an additional fly. If
desired the loop can be made long enough to set a hook directly on
it. However, to minimize the risk of fouling and twisting this
Dropper loop should not be too long.
Encyclopedia of knots includes also "silent" (without comments) videos (below) that could be viewed by anyone with any native language.
This video is the part of the YouTube Play list "Tying any fishing
knot under 30 second"
Instead of presenting here some kind of animation knot, pictures or videos inconvenient for reproducing the knot (as some websites do) we provide demonstration of tying knots using YouTube videos directly by hands. Videos are taking with such angle that viewer is experiencing a full presence in tying process and can actually repeat the creation of the knot by his/her own hands. In many cases we are forming the Knot using colored ropes for better understanding and memorizing of the way how fancy rope work was done. In videos (such as "Fishing Knots Under 30 seconds) we are also demonstrating tying knots in slow motion inviting viewer tying knot together with us.
You can certainly visit our "Encyclopedia of Knots" directly on YouTube where we created for you convenient playlists presenting knots depending on their use.
