How to tie a Dropper Loop Knot


One of the most amazing Loop Knot is a Dropper Loop Knot. Every loops I am creating on the fishing pools for deep sea fishing is the only Dropper Loop Knot. I am attaching a hook on this loop, a weight a lure or jig, or satellite hook. It is the most reliable Loop Knot with the strength of the knot that is closer to 100% of the fishing line or rope itself. The Dropper Loop Knot is a type of loop knot often used on multi-hook fishing lines. It can be created in the middle of a long line and forms a loop which is off to the side of the line. The Dropper Loop creates a loop that stands out at right angles to the middle of a length of line. It can be used in your leader or tippet to provide an extra attachment point for an additional fly. If desired the loop can be made long enough to set a hook directly on it. However, to minimize the risk of fouling and twisting this Dropper loop should not be too long. 
The Dropper loop is a type of loop knot often used on multi-hook fishing lines. It can be created in the middle of a long line and forms a loop which is off to the side of the line. Dropper loop knot is a method of attaching additional flies, baits or jigs to a single fishing line. If the loop is tied particularly large, one side of the loop can be cut where it exits the knot leaving a single strand line, upon which baits can be tied directly. The Dropper Loop Knot is one of greatest non slop fishing loops (knots) ever!
Use the dropper loop to attach hooks, tube lures, teasers or sinkers to an otherwise unknotted section of line. This knot forms a versatile loop with determines the distance between hook and sinker, or between one hook and another on multi-hook rigs. 
Dropper Loop Tying:
Create a large loop in the middle of a line. Holding the center, wrap the loop around this crossover point about two - six times. Open a hole in the center and pass the loop through the hole. Lubricate, hold the loop with your teeth, and pull the knot tight. Note: in nylon tightening this knot alters the structure.
When lubricated and pulled tight, the knot changes its structure. Pulling on each end forces the wrapped turns to redistribute the twists so that the inner strand becomes an outer wrap that you can see in the video...


Encyclopedia of knots includes also "silent" (without comments) videos (below) that could be viewed by anyone with any native language.




This video is the part of the YouTube Play list "Tying any fishing knot under 30 second"


Instead of presenting here some kind of animation knot, pictures or videos inconvenient for reproducing the knot (as some websites do) we provide demonstration of tying knots using YouTube videos directly by hands. Videos are taking with such angle that viewer is experiencing a full presence in tying process and can actually repeat the creation of the knot by his/her own hands. In many cases we are forming the Knot using colored ropes for better understanding and memorizing of the way how fancy rope work was done. In videos (such as "Fishing Knots Under 30 seconds) we are also demonstrating tying knots in slow motion inviting viewer tying knot together with us.

You can certainly visit our "Encyclopedia of Knots" directly on YouTube where we created for you convenient playlists presenting knots depending on their use.
