Buffer Loop

 

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.
buffer loop 1
Run the end back through the loose loop, and make another overhand knot, using the end and the standing part of the line.
buffer loop 2
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.
buffer loop 3
The finished knot.
