How to tie a Chod Loop
It’s not only the curvature of your Chod you want to consider – think about adding a loop to increase movement

Take your hooking section and pass it through the swivel eye and then pass it over itself once.

2 Now take the tag end and pass it back through the loop you originally created.

3 Next you want to take the tag end around and pass it back through that loop as shown.

4 Using a puller tool or a larger round baiting needle handle, insert it into the large loop.

5 Either using another puller tool or a lead, pull on the hook end and on loop end to bed it down.

6 And here’s the finished loop – all perfectly round so it makes the whole thing far more flexible.
