The Buffer Loop is used to attach a lure to a line or a leader via a non slip loop.
To Tie a Buffer Loop:
|Tie a simple Overhand Knot in line, leaving the loop loose and leaving the end long enough to complete the knot, and then run the end through the eye of a lure.|
|Run the end back through the loose loop, and make another overhand knot, using the end and the standing part of the line.|
|Tighten the overhand knot nearest to the lure eye, and then tighten the second overhand knot, which, if effect, forms a half hitch against the first knot.|
|The finished knot.|
