Default Clinch knot with a loop

Hi all,

Someone showed me a knot the other day and I can't for the life of me remember it. I do remember though that it started with a basic overhand knot to make a loop, and then a standard clinch knot, but I don't remember the finish to get the whole thing together. The idea was to have the hook hang on a little loop so that it would float more naturally.

Anyone know what I'm talking about? What's the name of it? And how do I tie it?

Thanks.

Sounds like a dropper loop to me. Go to animatedknots.com/dropperloop and you can see how it's tied. Pretty easy good for multi fly setups.

I pretty much only use streamers and this is the knot I use all the time. Its called a Non-Slip Mono Loop. Do a search and you'll find instructions for it. Its great for any sub-surface fly.

Is this what you're looking for?
Both Joni and I use the surgeons loop. No clinch knot involved.

Leaves a loop so the fly has movement.
I know it has a high breaking strength, 90% or higher.

I think you are either referring to a duncan loop or a non-slip loop knot

It was the non-slip mono loop!

Thanks everybody. Man, that was driving me crazy trying to find that thing.

There are a lot of great sites with animated gif knot instruction, but I seem to learn much better from the many YouTube videos out there. Check 'em out.
