Dropper Loop How to tie the Dropper Loop Knot. Using a dropper loop is a method of attaching additional flies, baits or jigs to a single fishing line. If the loop is tied particularly large, one side of the loop can be cut where it exits the knot leaving a single strand line, upon which baits can be tied directly. The Dropper Loop Knot is one of 12 great fishing knots included on the Pro-Knot Fishing Knot Cards (click to see).

Dropper Loop

1. Form a loop in the line at the desired location. Pass line from one side of loop through and around that side of loop. Make 5+ wraps and keep new loop, which is formed, open.

2. Push bottom of original loop up through new opening and hold with teeth. Wet knot with saliva and pull both ends in opposite directions.

3. Pull ends of line evenly until coils tighten and loop stands out from line.
