The Dropper Loop

This knot is used to form a loop which stands out from the line above a sinker or other terminal rig. Not a strong knot but servicable for pan fish and small salt water species where such rigs are used.
 
  1. First, form a loop in the line.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. Hold loop with teeth and pull both ends of line, making turns gather on either side of loop.
  1. Set knot by pulling lines as tightly as possible. Tightening coils will make loop stand out perpendicular to line.
