An Angler's loop is a type of knot which forms a fixed loop. Useful for fine or slippery line, it is one of the few loop knots which holds well in bungee cord. It is quite secure but it jams badly and is not suitable if the knot will need to be untied.
Angler's loop may be tied
- alone and then used,
- it may be tied through an object (typically a ring),
Angler's loop may be tied around the hand, it may also be tied this way one handed, or with several loops if need be:
- Angler's loop may be locked additionally with half hitches
- Angler's loop may be fashioned with several loops (then locking may be necessary)
