Specialty Fishing Knots

Dropper Loop

A better method of forming a loop, or loops, in the line above the sinker is to use the old Dropper Loop. This draws into a knot that stands out at right angles to the line.

If desired, the loops can be made long enough to have a hook set on them. And once again, this is not a good practice unless the fish are biting-mad, which they rarely are.

Form a loop in the line.
Take hold of one side of the loop, and make 6 or more turns around the line itself.
This is the tricky part - keep open the point where the turns, or twists, are being made.
Take hold of the other side of the loop, and pull it through the centre opening. use a finger in this loop so that it is not lost.
Hold this loop between the teeth. Pull gently on both ends of the line, making the turns gather and pack down on either side of the loop.
Draw up the knot by pulling the lines as tightly as possible. The turns will make the loop stand at right angles to the line.

Float Stop

The float fisherman uses a running float for casting and general handiness, and stops the float from running up the line by using the Float Stop. It has the advantage that the stops moves readily over the rod guides, but grips the monofilament nylon so tightly that it will not slide over the line.

It should be made with about 12.5cm of nylon, usually the same diameter as the line itself.

Take 2 turns (3 if necessary) around the main line at the chosen point.
Bring both ends around to form a Surgeon's Knot (see above).
Tighten into shape bringing the coils close together.
