Knot of the Month –  King Sling Loop

437This is a simple and quick knot to tie, creating a non-slip loop in almost any size line. It is also extremely strong, retaining 95% of line strength. This loop can be used for larger streamers, to allow more action especially when using heavier leader. A disadvantage of the knot is that it uses a large amount of leader.

Step 1: pass the leader through the hook eye and double back over the desired length of standing line, form a loop in the doubled line

Step 2: twist the loop 3-5 times, keeping the loops level and not allowing them to bunch up

Step 3: pass the hook through the loop formed at the end of the twist

Step 4: slowly pull the knot tight, maintaining the desired loop size, trim tag end
