Fishing Knots: Egg Loop Knot – Best Knot for Bait!
Hey everybody, this is Fishthatwont quit again. I know some of my old videos had a little bit of poor image quality. I’d like to kind of make some updated videos so you can see the knot a little bit better and hopefully tie it a little bit easier. We are going to do the egg loop knot again
for you here today. The Egg Loop Knot is really great knot. It is a really strong knot you’re going to
feel confident with it in the water. Plus, it allows you to kind of add things to the hook as you know, baits, or attractants. Whether it is eggs or shrimp or yarn with scent in it. You can really use it for any situation where you�re plunking or drift fishing or even bobber fishing. It’s a great knot. so, to get started, you have your hook in one hand, and the line the other. we’re going to want to do is start the line going through the eye the hook in this direction and it’s important it goes this way and then I like to right where it bends kind of put the line there and hold it tight with my left hand just like that. now with this part you’re going to wrap it around the shank of the hook and the line that you’re holding and with a thinner line you�re wrap more and with a thicker line you’re going to wrap less and this is about a 20 maybe 15-pound test if it was a monofilament so I’m going to do about 10 wraps to begin with so we got one around the eye the hook then two three four five six seven eight nine we’ll go with nine you can see you kind of wrap it down the shank of the hook like that now at this part of the line I like to to hold to tight with my left hand just like that that is important because if it gets loose your wraps are going to unravel and you’re have to start from the beginning now the next step is to grab the other end of your line that you are
tying. you’re going to put it in the eye the hook in the opposite direction and you can just go about a couple inches here you’re going to pull it through a little later and then what you’re going to want to do is take this part of the line and align it with the shank of the hook and hold it with your left hand so now I got everything aligned on the shank of the hook and the loop line you’re still holding with your left hand and then we’re going to do is wrap this line around everything that you�re holding here and about seven more times with the this kind of a line we’ll go one two three four five six and seven now hold it tight again with that left hand then
we’re going to do is pull the tag end through the eye and kind of go slow sometimes it will get tension build up over here and you don’t want it to knot up you’re going to get to a point where everything is really close what I like to do is grab all the loops with your right hand you can let go the other side and then go ahead and keep pulling that tag in until everything tightens up and It will kind of go through your fingers here once you’re tight you can let go and you’ll see a completed egg loop knot and what I like to do is tighten it a little bit up it nice and cinched together just like so this tag end you’re going to go ahead and cut and it doesn’t look that great and then what you’re left with is the egg loop knot so basically here this line that you just pulled through is your loop then you can add whatever you like Just tighten it down you’re ready to fish thanks for watching
