How to Tie the Dropper Loop Video Tutorial
The dropper loop is a type of loop knot that is commonly used in fishing. It is used to create a loop in a fishing line that can be used to attach multiple hooks, lures or sinkers. The dropper loop is also used to attach a single hook to the fishing line at a 90-degree angle, which can help to prevent line twist and enable the bait to move more naturally in the water.
To tie a dropper loop, you start by forming a loop in the line, then make a series of twists around the standing line, and finish by passing the loop back through the twists. The resulting knot creates a loop perpendicular to the main line, allowing for the attachment of additional lines or hooks.
The dropper loop is a simple and versatile knot that is commonly used in both freshwater and saltwater fishing. However, it is important to ensure that the knot is tied correctly to prevent it from slipping or coming undone.
