The No-Slip Mono Loop Knot is used for tying on bigger flies so they have a little more action. A clinch-type knot grabs onto the eye and constrains movement. Sometimes a little more wiggle in your fly can make all the difference.
- Start by tying and overhand knot in your line (before you thread it through the eye of the hook).
- Take the tag end of the line through the eye
- Thread the tag end back through the loop in the line created by the overhand knot.
- Wrap the tag end around the main line 5-7 times.
- Thread the tag end through the overhand knot.
- Slowly pull the knot tight, while maintaining the loop size desired. Use lubrication if necessary.
- Once it is tight, clip your tag end.
