Tying the Non-Slip Mono Loop Knot

This fishing knot works well with heavier leaders

While not a particularly strong knot, the Non-Slip Mono Loop is very easy to tie and performs extremely well with heavier leader material (20-pound-plus). A major benefit of using a loop knot is that it allows a lure, fly or bait to move more freely, which may make it appear more natural to a game fish.

 

The Non-Slip Mono Loop Knot

1. Tie an overhand knot in the leader. Pass the tag end through the eye of the hook or lure and back through the overhand knot.
