How to tie the Non Slip Loop Knot. The Non-Slip Mono Loop is also known as the “Kreh Loop” as it has been popularized by fishing legend Lefty Kreh. As its name suggests it forms a non-slip loop at the end of a fishing line. The loop connection to a fly or a lure can give the fly or lure more natural action. Some fishermen find the Kreh Loop easier to tie than the similar Rapala Knot and equally reliable. The Non Slip Loop Knot is one of 12 great fishing knots included on the Pro-Knot Fly Fishing Knot Cards (click to see).
