Perfection loop

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font
Description: The main benefit of this knot is that the loop formed lies directly in line with the main line.


1. Make a loop, about 40mm in diameter in the end of the nylon, and pinch it between thumb and forefinger.

2. Repeat the action and make a second loop slightly smaller and around the first loop. hold both loops between thumb and forefinger.

3. Pass the tag end between the two loops and pull the second, smaller loop, through the first loop to tighten the knot. Moisten the knot as you pull it tight.

4. Trim the tag end to finish the knot.
