Five sim­ple steps to cre­ate a very handy knot

Sea Angler (UK) - - Con­tents -

48 Five steps to mak­ing a drop­per loop.

KNOWN as the drop­per loop, drop­per knot or blood loop knot, this is a use­ful ad­di­tion to your skills, and is of­ten used to make mul­ti­ple hook­bait rigs, or to at­tach lures above a jig. The loops can be used to at­tach hook snoods or, if made large enough, can be cut to cre­ate hook snoods – re­mov­ing the need to se­cure a swivel and beads with crimps or stop knots on your main rig body.

By cre­at­ing a larger loop, it can be cut to cre­ate a snood and a hook tied on the end.
