Double Surgeon's Knot

The Double Surgeon's Loop is a quick, easy way to tie a loop in the end of a leader. It is often used as part of a leader system because it is relatively strong.

Step 1

Double the tag end of the line. Make a single overhand knot in the double line.

Step 2

Hold the tag end and standing part of the line in your left hand and bring the loop around and insert through the overhand knot.

Step 3

Hold the loop in your right hand. Hold the tag end and standing line in your left hand.

Step 4

Moisten the knot in water and pull to tighten. Trim tag end to about 1/8 inch.
