    Default How Do I fasten two loops together

    Hi to all,

    The following tutorial shows the proper way to fasten two loops together.

    Step 1

    You need to have two lines with loops in the ends. This is useful for connecting a leader to a fly line or a tippet to a leader. A Perfection Loop, a Surgeon Loop or a Non-Slip Mono knot can be used. The loops shown in the photos are large for the sake of the demonstration. When fastening a tippet to a leader the loops should be as small as possible.

    Step 2

    Place one loop over the other loop.

    Step 3

    Pinch the two loops together between your thumb and forefinger.

    Step 4

    Take the End of the line you placed over the other loop and put it through the loop in the other line.

    Step 5

    Grasp the end of the line you put through the loop and pull all the slack through the loop.

    Step 6

    The two loops will inter-lock like shown in this picture.

    Step 7

    Grasp both lines and pull the knot tight.
