The Dropper loop is a type of loop knot which is often used on multi-hook fishing lines. It can be created in the middle of a long line and forms a loop which is off to the side of the line.


Techniques

Dropper Loop being formed

There are two main methods of tying the dropper loop.

  1. Gather a loop and then twist it around the overlap a few times
  2. Form the loop and then use a matchstick to twist up the overlap.

Finally drop the loop through the central twist.
