    That's my go-to knot for streamers, shanks, and tubes. It's a very common knot.

    Non-Slip Mono Loop

    The animated instructions say to go around the standing end 5-6 times. I only ever go around 3 times, even with 7X, and have never had a problem. I always leave a small tag to allow for slippage.
    Looks like a Lefty's Loop to me mate...

    It’s a Homer Rhodes loop knot.

    Bingo! We have a winner.



    FWIW, I use this knot as I find it easier than most loop knots to tie in the field (with ageing eyes and fingers :-) If using light mono, I make an extra pass or two through the final overhand knot (a la Uni knot). Good knot for fishing poppers on heavy tippets.

    ".....but I have NEVER seen any reference to this version of a loop knot. Have you? What is it's name."

    As others have said it's a Homer Rhode - two overhand knots jamming each other. It was the easiest loop knot to tie in the old days of 100 lb Mason Hard Shockers or "Bite Tippets".

    Homer Rhodes lived about 15 miles from where I grew up and fished the same snook water as my father and I did ocassionally. Everglades City/Chokolosskee area. He fished for snook in the Tamiami trail closer to Florida Bay, I caught bass in the Tamiami Trail closer to Hialeah. It was a long bike trip.

    A bunch of the videos call knots with surgeons either on the main line or the tag end or both, Homer Rhode knots but they are not. Orvis calls one of the them an "Improved" Homer Rhode, saying they are best for 30lb and under tippet. I don't know about that.

    The old guys I fished with used them on heavy bite tippets. Here's an interesting article about him on MidCurrent.

    Definitely for heavy tippets. It's a popular knot with the guides in the Seychelles on leaders in excess of 80lb when chasing GTs.

    I've seen this referred to as Homer Rhode loop for many years in books and magazines, but farm boys tied the same knot in ropes long before I was born.
    I used it for fishing before I ever saw it published, you can use two round turns or make a double over hand knot to be more secure. Leave the first over hand knot out and the "round twice & through twice" knot will draw tight to the hook and has served me better than any other terminal knot. The weakest part being the first overhand knot that forms the loop,ime.
