How to tie a figure-of-eight loop knot
A super strong knot every carp angler should know...

001 Double a good length of hooklink material back on itself so you have lots to work with.

003 Take the loop around the back of the two running lines as shown in the illustration.

004 Now put the end through the big loop and gently moisten and tease the knot down.

005 Fully tighten the loop knot down (use a Pulla Tool) and trim off the excess tag end.

006 And here is your finished knot. This is also awesome for quick-change lead systems!
