How To Tie A Figure Of Eight 8 Loop Knot
The figure of eight loop knot is similar to the overhand loop knot but once bedded down is often more streamlined and stronger. See below how to tie this knot:
Fold a section of your line back on itself to create a loop.
Bring this loop section back passing it over itself.
Wrap the loop around the back of itself before then passing the end through the first loop.
Pull it semi tight pulling on the mainline loop and tag together, wet the line with saliva to ensure friction doesn’t melt the line and then pull it really tight.
Trim the tag end and then you have the perfect figure of eight loop.
With a loop in your line, you can attach a weight or baiting device like this.
You can also attach another section of fishing line which has a loop in it like this.
