Default Re: Favorite "loop" knot?

Jim: When you loop your tippet on the leader tip loop the figure eight configuration has enough friction on both legs of the leader loop that it doesnít slip. If the Duncan loop is set with enough tension it wonít slip except possibly when landing very large fish Ė then itís OK to slip and you can be happy that you got such a big one! Regarding the visibility of the knot, we are talking about tying the tippet directly to the fly without a shock (bite) tippet with a knot that may be twice the size of other knots but actually tests 100%.
