Most fly fishers believe that a streamer has a more enticing motion in the water if it’s attached to the leader with a loop knot. In this video, Paul Bloch of Montana’s Big R Fly Shop demonstrates a simple way to make a non-slip loop on any fly. (Check out all six videos in the Big R Quick Tip Series here.) If you learn better from a knot animation, check out the Non-Slip Mono Loop animation on the Orvis Fly Fishing Learning Center.
There are other variations on this theme as well, such as this one, demonstrated by Tim Landwehr of Tight Lines Fly Fishing Co. in Wisconsin. Either method will get the job done, so the next time you go to tie on a streamer, consider using a loop knot!

Off topic, but the Auto Play of the “NEW Silver Sonic Waders” add towards the bottom of your web pages is more than a little annoying, especially on a page where you are also auto playing a video at the top of the page, which is the video that I actually came to this page to see. The result is I go to a page and TWO videos start to auto play simultaneously. Very annoying.
PLEASE disable the auto play functionality of the “NEW Silver Sonic Waders” ad, or any other subsequent ad on your web pages.
Sorry that you’re having that problem. However, neither video autoplays for me. Is anyone else having this happen? I wonder if it’s a setting on your end.
I have not had any problems with auto play, running chrome or safari…. I did have videos starting on other websites while running chrome, but was able to click a button at the bottom of the video that said “don’t allow autoplay” or something to that effect, and none do anymore.
