Tying loops in fishing line

Tying strong loops in a line is a handy skill; if they can be kept compact enough to pass through the eye of a swivel, they provide an easy way of replacing the hook length on a rig without replacing the entire rig.

It's time to learn a consistent way as I'm keen to start making some exchangeable hook lengths of a standard size so that I can design my rigs around them. I bought a loop tyer from Amazon, actually £3.59 got me four.

Learning to use this tool was a real challenge as no instructions were provided. After 30 minutes of cursing and getting increasingly frustrated, I resorted to YouTube there I found an excellent tutorial from NG Fishing and the results seem to be acceptable and consistent. Another new skill learned.
