How To Tie A Dropper Loop Knot The Quick & Easy Way
By: Joe Simonds on August 23, 2017
It’s fishing knot time again!
This time it’s all about dropper rigs.
Today, we are going to focus on the quickest way to tie the dropper loop knot and why this method is better than the traditional “Dropper Rig Knot.”
The reason this Dropper Loop Knot (using the Surgeon’s knot) is the best I’ve seen so far is three-fold:
- The Surgeon’s loop knot I use in this dropper loop knot has proven to be stronger than any of the other knots I’ve seen anglers use to tie dropper rigs
- The Surgeon’s loop knot is easier to tie (it’s one of the easiest fishing knots out there)
- With a loop knot like the one I make in the video, you can change out weights or hooks without ever having to tie another knot again…
Note: Make sure to stick around until the end of the video below as I’ll show you the simple trick to change out weights and hooks without having to retie your dropper knot.
Best Way To Tie A Dropper Loop Knot
Pretty cool way to tie a dropper rig, huh?
I haven’t found a better, stronger, or easier way than to add in the Surgeon’s knot to make a Dropper Loop knot (but I’m always looking).
Do you have any tricks you can share when it comes to making dropper rigs?
Any other fishing knots you want me to try out or put to the test?
Let me know in the comments.
