Homer Rhode Loop

 

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.

Make three or more turns on the tag end around the standing part, depending on the type of line (the slipperier, the more turns).

Tighten the turns and pull the tag end to bring the wraps together, then pull the standing part to tighten the knot.
