The non-slip loop creates a fixed loop so a lure can move freely (as opposed to a clinch knot that the knot is tightly tied to the hook. This knot is a great choice for crankbaits, jigging applications and top water baits that need a lot of side to side action and freedom to move with the action of the lure.
Always moisten your line with saliva or water before pulling tight. This is especially important on fluorocarbon lines they are easily damaged by heat from friction.
1. Make an overhand knot in the line about 10 inches from the tag end.
2. Take the tag end of the line and pass it through the eye of the hook.
3. Pass the tag end through the loop of the overhand knot.
4. Wrap tag end around line 5 or 6 times.
5. Bring tag end back through overhand knot on the same side it exited.
6. Moisten the knot and pull slowly on the tag end.
7. Pull loop and main line in opposite directions to cinch down knot. Clip tag end.
