Prefered loop knot

Recommended Posts

Might tie a few 1 metre length fluro leaders up for my next trip out, normaly i would tie a surgeons loop as it is a very easy knot, would you use this knot on a leader or go with a different loop knot?

Steve renyard  did dvd rigs or on line he had a few new ones .one was perfect knot kept shape didn't tilt to one side. 

That's the problem with loop knots, looks skiwiff but should not cause a problem on a snag leader?

I wouldn’t tie a loop knot to then tie another knot to that. I would join the 2 materials together using a leader knot. Either a back to back grinner or Mahin knot for Fluoro to mono. 

Good call never tied a mono leader before always used either leadcore or fluro straight through, be easier to buy those pre looped leaders but i have a half spool of good quality fluro that makes for a much finer leader. 

I have tested the surgeons loop on the fluro, it snaps below the loop knot, but i may go with the mahin knot you advised, ta.
