The Dropper Loop Knot 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 Knot is also used on multi-hook fishing lines. Learn how to tie the Dropper Loop Knot following the 6 steps below.
Step 1: Form the line into an “S” shape.
Step 2: Take the top curve and tuck it under the bottom curve.
Step 3: Holding the center where the two loops cross with your index finger, wrap the top of the loop down around this crossover point.
Step 4: Wrap the loop in the same direction circling the crossover point 6 to 7 times.
Step 5: Now open a hole in the center and pass the loop through the hole. Lubricate.
Step 6: While holding both ends of the line in your hands, hold the loop in your teeth and pull the knot tight.
