Better to know a knot and not need it, than need a knot and not know it.

Egg Loop Knot Tying

Pass one end of the leader through the eye. Wrap the long end around the hook and short end about 15 times. Pass the long end through the hook to create a loop. Continue wrapping using the loop about another 7 times. Pull the long end to tighten the wraps. Open up the egg loop.

Egg Loop Knot Details

Names: The Egg Loop Knot is also sometimes known as the Bumper Knot. It is a modification of the Snell knot in that turns are wrapped prior to the end being passed through the eye for the second time.

Uses: Fish eggs, shrimp, and fish roe make excellent bait. The Egg Loop knot provides a hold for the bait and is commonly used when fishing for salmon and steelhead trout.

Tying it: Keep all the turns tight and avoid overlaps: develop a hold on the hook and line so that you can keep control of the turns. The first turn is usually the most awkward. However, the wraps using the loop can easily result in twists that can complicate the final pull to complete the knot (frame 16).

Disclaimer: Any activity that involves ropes is potentially hazardous. Lives may be at risk - possibly your own. Considerable attention and effort have been made to ensure that these descriptions are accurate. However, many critical factors cannot be controlled, including: the choice of materials; the age, size, and condition of ropes; and the accuracy with which these descriptions have been followed. No responsibility is accepted for incidents arising from the use of this material.
