Lesson 14: How to Make Fishing Lures | Fishing and Lure Making: Tackle Rigs – The Double Dropper
The Dropper Loop creates a loop that stands out at right angles to the middle of a length of line. It can be used in your leader or tippet to provide an extra attachment point for an additional fly. If desired the loop can be made long enough to set a hook directly on it. However, to minimize the risk of fouling and twisting this Dropper loop should not be too long. The Dropper knot is also used on multi-hook fishing lines. This is a great rig for avoiding crabs who will often steal the bait of other rigs, like the Carolina Rig. Just be careful: some states don’t allow the use of more than two hooks on one rig. So make sure you check your local fishing laws before getting too fancy.
