Dropper Loop

 

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. survival_knot_tying_dropper_loop_1
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. survival_knot_tying_dropper_loop_2
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. survival_knot_tying_dropper_loop_3
Hold loop with teeth and pull both ends of line, making turn gather on either side of loop. survival_knot_tying_dropper_loop_4
Set knot by pulling lines as tightly as possible. Tightening coils will make loop stand out perpendicular to line. survival_knot_tying_dropper_loop_5
