This knot is used mostly on multi-hook fishing lines. The Dropper Loop makes a secure loop anywhere on your line. These loops stand out at right angles to the side of the line. They can be made long enough to allow additional hooks to be set on them. The Dropper Loop does not compromise the lines strength.
To Tie a Dropper Loop:
|To form loop which stands out from the line above sinker or other terminal rig. First, form a loop in the line.|
|Pull one side of the loop down and begin taking turns with it around the standing line. Keep point where turns are made open so turns gather equally on each side.|
|After eight to ten turns, reach through the center opening and pull remaining loop through. Keep finger in this loop so it will not spring back.|
|Hold loop with teeth and pull both ends of line, making turn gather on either side of loop.|
|Set knot by pulling lines as tightly as possible. Tightening coils will make loop stand out perpendicular to line.|
