    This knot was posted by Bob, needed to re port it here!

    Nice video - Sam! I had already watched it on Youtube.

    I use the loop knot AKA Canoeman knot on my jigs. That leaves a loop on the eye and gives the jig some freedom to move around as you retrieve it. A lot of the top water lure guys also use it, especially on the Zara Spook and Skitterwalk.

    I use the same knot with live bait(any live bait) offers more freedom of movement, BUT
    it doesn't work for sheepies, that freedom of movement lets them suck the fiddler off the
    hook and you don't even know it happened!!

    Good knot, one you can tie even with wet cold hands.

    Gritter - I have to change your cold hands to old hands! Try it in the dark with the wind blowing! But it's a great knot. That's all I use on the jigs.

    No braid for me! I'm too old to start now plus the expense. I use nothing but Sufix Seige 8# (river) and 12# (Surf) mono.

    I had researched it a little, it appears it works with braid, most use a double-uni to a leader then the loop. This knot is used often by flyfishermen.

    Thanks, I like it. I doubled the line and it looks solid. Hopefully I can hook up on a hog.

    I use the loop knot on the jig heads with 20# florocarbon leader. I've never had one pull out!

    Good knot from the looks of it, I like the freedom it looms to give the bait.

    Cool knot. I tend to use metal leaders when salt water fishing though so the teethy type of fish don't cut my line. I would use this knot for fresh water though.

    I basically tie 2 knots - this is one of them. Besides being very simple and quick to tie, I like that the tag ends up facing backwards towards the lure, which can be helpful when fishing grassy areas.

    I'm right there with you. It just keeps things simple! If it's not this it's pretty much a Palomar.
