Loop To Loop Knot
How to tie the Loop to Loop Knot. The Loop to Loop Knot is not really a knot per say. It is a method of joining or interconnecting two loops and is often referred to as interlocking loops. The method is simple enough but there is one pitfall to be avoided. That is where one loop folds the wrong way making a girth hitch. See illustration "Wrong" to avoid that. The loop to loop connection is exceptionally strong. Many fly lines now come with pre-made loops on their ends. Just tie a loop at the end of the leader you are attaching (Perfection Loop, Surgeon's End Loop, etc.) and use the Loop to Loop knot to join the two lines.

Loop to Loop Knot Tying Instructions
- Slip one loop over the other loop.
- Run leader line through same loop.
- Pull lines in opposite directions to lock the loops together. Be careful that the loops join together end to end and that one does not fold back forming a girth hitc
