The Homer Rhode Loop enables a lure to swing freely and can be tied with mono or braided line, even plastic-coated wire if need be. Be sure to use pliers to make the turns tight.
To Tie a Homer Rhode Loop:
|Tie an overhand knot in the standing part and pass the tag end through the eye.|
|Pass the tag end through the loop of the overhand knot.|
|Make three or more turns on the tag end around the standing part, depending on the type of line (the slipperier, the more turns).|
|Pass the tag end back through the overhand loop.|
|Tighten the turns and pull the tag end to bring the wraps together, then pull the standing part to tighten the knot.|
