Kreh Loop Knot

This knot, named for famed angler Lefty Kreh, is also known as the Non-Slip Mono Loop. For some, the Kreh Loop Knot is easier to tie than the Rapala Knot and is just as reliable. It creates a non-slip loop at the end of a line for loop-to-loop connections, which are used with flies and lures to give them the most natural action possible.
