Fly Fishing Knots: Non-Slip Mono Loop Animation
The Non-Slip Mono Loop is a very strong loop knot that allows a fly to hang free at the tippet connection. It's best in a monofilament small than 20lb test.

How to Tie the Non-Slip Mono Loop
2. Bring the tag end back through the overhand knot, making sure that it enters the loop formed by the overhand knot on the same side that it exited when you tied the overhand. The distance between the fly and the overhand knot determines the size of your loop, so work the knot up or down the standing part of the leader until you get the distance you want.
3. Wrap the tag end around the standing part of the leader, just as you would in tying a clinch knot. Make 6 turns for material less than 8-lb test, 5 turns for material up to 40 lb.
