Poorly tied knots are the main reason why many big fish gain their freedom before reaching the net. Master these four simple knots, and you’ll be prepared when you finally encounter Mr. Big.
The Dropper Loop:
This knot forms a loop at a right angle to the main line. It’s an excellent way to attach a dropper fly in front of a swimming plug. It’s also perfect for attaching teasers above a jig, and can also be used to attached pre-tied bottomfish leaders above your sinker using a loop-to-loop connection.
