Know Your Knots
Five simple steps to create a very handy knot
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.
