Fly Fishing Knots: Doubled Fly Line Loop Video

The Doubled Fly Line Loop is used for making a permanent loop in either end of fly line. It's best in fly lines bigger than 7 weight as it is bulkier than a nail knot.

See detailed instructions below for each step in tying the Doubled Fly Line Loop.
  1. Fold over the end of the fly line until about two inches overlap. Tie a speed nail knot using fine diameter nylon monofilament 1/2 inch from the end of the loop around both pieces of the fly line(.008' to .010" diameter monofilament works best). Trim both ends of the nail knot.
  2. Tie a second speed nail knot in the same manner one inch from the end of the fly line loop. Trim the ends.
