Thirty years ago, SWS contributor Bob McNally needed a knot that would create an open loop in the end of the line to give better action to his plugs and large spoons -- and he needed it in a hurry. He decided to modify a surgeon's loop by using three wraps instead of the standard two. What resulted from this simple change? The McNally Loop, which McNally says is "very easy to tie and allows for plenty of lure movement." To adjust the size of the loop, walk the wraps toward the lure or away along the standing doubled line before snugging it down.
