I will be the first to admit that I have not always used loop knots in my 30+ year fishing career, but for the last 10 of those years, I’ve become a believer that you definitely get more action on your lures when you employ any of a number of loop knot options. Can I tell you for sure it produces more fish? I can’t prove it, but many of the little finer points of fishing we do because it might catch you one more. We are never saying you won’t catch a fish without doing these fishing tips.
Success and consistency in fishing rely upon making sure the factors in your control are at their absolute maximum potential. Then the stage is set to capitalize on those moments when Mother Nature offers you a chance at a fish. I’ve always mentally suffered greatly if I thought I lost a fish because of a factor in my control. So it’s only natural that I avoid that feeling. It’s bad enough when a fish gets away just because “that’s fishing”.
