Whether you are fishing inshore or offshore, the non-slip loop knot is an incredibly useful knot to know because it is super strong and easy to tie.
The non-slip loop knot also adds action to your lures and enhances the overall presentation.
You can tie this knot on ANY hook or lure you have just as long as there is no split-ring or swivel attached.
This knot is typically used to create direct action on the lure you’re using.
First, take the tag end and wrap it around the main line to create a small, initial loop.
Do NOT pull the knot tight.
If you tilt the knot and view it from the side, you will see there is a ‘top-side’ and a ‘bottom-side’ to the loop.
If you do not identify the top and bottom of the knot, then the knot won’t cinch down right at the end.
Then, take the tag end of the line and run it back through the eye of your jighead or hook.
Next, feed the tag end back through the bottom side of that first loop you made.
Twist the tag end around the main line two times.
Then run the tag end back through the loop and pull snugly.
Trim the tag end to your liking and you’re set to begin fishing.
The additional freedom the loop gives the lure to move only enhances your presentation and allows the lure to move naturally in the water.
If you are letting a lure fall to the bottom or jigging it up and down, that extra space provided by the loop could be the difference between triggering a strike or not.
