The Egg Loop is an essential knot for steelhead and salmon fishing but takes a bit of practice to learn. One of the reasons it’s hard to learn is every video I have found shows it from the reverse perspective — as if you are watching somebody tie it in person. In this vid, we shot from that angle but also from the first person view — so you can see how it looks as if you were tying it yourself!
What’s your favorite knot for tying lures on?
Thanks, Jack H.
Well, Jack, that all depends on what kind of lure we’re talking about. For stuff like plugs and rip baits, etc..stuff that needs to have some freedom of movement…I’ll tie a loop knot called a Tarpon Knot. Otherwise, you can’t go too wrong with the good ol’ Palomar.
