The Loop Knot: What Is It?

To learn about tying a loop knot, it’s very important to first understand what really is a loop knot.

Amongst the plethora of fishing knots that you can learn to tie, the thing about a loop knot is that it is a fishing knot category that has an open loop.

Loop knots basically have open loops. This open loop is useful for tying the rig end to a fishing line for artificial lures.

Loop knots are one of the best fishing knots because this knot can also be used as an interconnecting system to attach tackle parts.

The loop fishing knot is widely used in fishing.

This is because the loop knot is great at preventing the leader and the fishing line from interrupting the movement and functionality of lures, especially artificial lures.

Types of Loop Knots

The next important thing to cover before learning how to tie a loop knot is to learn about the various types of loop fishing knots.

Yes, there are different types of loop knots that you can learn to tie. Here are some of the most popular types of loop knots:

1) Non slip loop knot

The non slip loop knot, also called the Kreh loop knot, is the hot favorite loop knot amongst fishermen.

This is probably the most widely used loop knot. It is called the Kreh loop as it has named after Lefty Kreh.

He was the one who popularized the usage of the non slip loop knot.

The Kreh knot is called the non-slip loop knot because the loop formed by this knot is a non-slip one on the end of a fishing line.

The Kreh loop knot is a highly reliable fishing knot that is significantly easier to tie than knots like the Rapala knot.

This loop knot is very useful for enhancing the functionality and movement of artificial lures.

2) Perfection loop knot

Now apart from the non-slip loop knot, another great loop knot amongst fishing knots is the perfection loop knot.

The perfection loop knot is known to be one of the easiest and simplest ways to make a small loop on a line.

The small loop lies in perfect alignment with the tag end.

This loop knot is widely used for joining a perfection loop in the tag end to the leader’s perfection loop using the loop to loop connection.

3) Surgeon’s fishing loop knot

Apart from the Kreh knot and the perfection loop knot, the double surgeon’s knot or the surgeon’s loop fishing knot is another popular loop knot amongst fishing knots.

This loop knot utilizes more lines than other loop knots.

Although this loop knot feels and looks bulky, it’s very useful for making strong loops at tag ends and fishing leaders to connect to other loops.

How to tie a loop knot for fishing: the non-slip loop knot

Follow the given steps to tie the non-slip loop knot perfectly.

Step 1

The first thing to do to make a non-slip loop knot is to tie an overhand knot about 3-4 inches above the tag end of the fishing line.

The top side of this overhand loop should point upwards (towards the mainline).

Step 2

After this, the tag end of the leader line must be pulled through your artificial lure’s eye.

Step 3

The tag end of your line that you just passed through the artificial lure has to then be pulled through the downward portion of the overhand loop.

Keep pulling the mainline and tag end till the overhand loop moves down to the hook eye.

Then pinch the loop using your index finger and thumb.

Step 4

Ensuring that the twists go in the same direction, you need to wrap the tag end around the fishing mainline.

Step 5:

After making the twists around the mainline with the tag end, you need to again pull it back through the overhand loop (upward-facing side of this loop).

Then pull the tag end and mainline in opposite directions to tighten the knot.

Step 6

The loop knot is now ready. All you have to do is wet this loop knot with a bit of water and then cinch the loop knot. After that, just cut the tag end of the fishing line.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do you tie a loop on a fishing line?

Pass the tag end behind the standing line to make the first loop on the end of the fishing line. Form a second loop by wrapping the line around the first loop. Then wrap the line around the upper part of the second loop. While holding onto the tag end, pass the second loop through the first loop and cinch the knot.

How do you tie a simple loop knot?

Pass the tag end over the standing line. Tuck in the tag end inside the loop and then pull out the end. Then pull the tag end and main fishing line in opposite directions for cinching the loop knot.
