The Dropper Loop

Dropper Loop

  1. Dropper Loop
    First, form a loop in the line.
  2. Dropper Loop
    Pull one side of the loop down and begin taking turns with it around the standing line. Keep point where turns are made open so turns gather equally on each side.
  3. Dropper Loop
    After eight to ten turns, reach through center opening and pull remaining loop through. Keep finger in this loop so it will not spring back.
  4. Dropper Loop
    Hold loop with teeth and pull both ends of line, making turns gather on either side of loop.
  5. Dropper Loop
    Set knot by pulling lines as tightly as possible. Tightening coils will make loop stand out perpendicular to line. Not a strong knot but servicable for pan fish and small salt water species where such rigs are used.
