Double Surgeon Loop

from rio products

This film shows how to tie the Surgeons Loop knot - a strong, simple knot used to tie a loop in the end of tippet or a leader. Easy to see, and with clear directions and some top tips, this is one of the best knot films out there. In addition, this film finishes with a laboratory test that breaks both knots under a controlled environment - illustrating the relative knot strength of each. The knot tested in this film was tied in a piece of 10lb RIO Steelhead/Salmon tippet material.
