This is another great and very strong loop knot. The non-slipping loop allows your fly to move freely and adds just a little more action than a traditional clinch type knot. This knot is extremely useful on heavy shock tippet.
- Tie an overhand knot in the line.
- Thread the tag through the eye of the fly and then back through the original overhand knot.
- Tie a second overhand knot in the tag end around the main line above the original overhand knot.
- Pull everything into place, working the knot into position depending on how big you want the final loop to be. Use saliva to lubricate the knot as it is tightened.
- Once the knot is tight and secure, trim the tag end.
