Loop To Loop Knot

How to tie the Loop to Loop Knot. The Loop to Loop Knot is not really a knot per se. 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.
