Duncan's Loop

Click here for fishing knots main page Learn to tie Duncans Loop fishing knot

Welcome to The FinTalk Fishing Knots details page for tying the Duncan's Loop . Follow the directions step by step and practice tying any particular knot over and over until you have it mastered. Learn it and practice it so when you are faced with changing lures or rigs in the middle of a hot bite you can quickly tie your knot and get your line back in the water. Sometimes the bite is only on for a little while so getting caught up with tying and re-tying rigs can cost valuable fish time. Remember not only should you be able to tie your knot fairly quick but you should be able to tie your fishing knot properly fairly quick. Nothing is worse than having what you know was a big daddy fish and losing him only to wind up your line to see your knot failed. It is enough to ruin your day, especially if the fishing is slow. So enjoy learning to tie these knots and for more detailed instructions check out "Fishing Knots and Rigs' by Geoff Wilson.

Use the Duncan's Loop to attach your fly to your tippet. Leave the loop open to allow the fly to swing freely, or close the loop tight against the hook eye for a tight hold.

Knot Instructions
STEP 1. Pass about 6" to 8" of the tag end through hook eye and bring back up along bottom of standing line.
STEP 2. Take tag end back towards hook eye forming a loop on the bottom and two lines on top. Pinch tag end against two top lines.
STEP 3. Wrap tag end around the two lines five times. Use four wraps for lines 40-50lb.
STEP 4. Wet knot and tighten by pulling on tag end. This knot can be slid down to the hook eye and tightened or tightened up away from the hook, providing a loop knot for a free-swinging fly. Note: When using fine diameter lines and tightening down at the hook,some anglers prefer to go through the hook eye twice.
STEP 5. Bait up, and catch fish.
