    Just saw this knot used to attach heavy line to a trolling skirt. She did it so fast I could knot see how she did it. Does anyone know/use this knot?

    i can see how she duzzit..... if your having trouble catching it, just pause it wherever you're losing it........ just move your cursor off the screen and a clear 'paused' picture will appear

    no, i don't use that knot but would consider it in an emergency if i tested it first

    that's a flyfishing knot the "perfection loop"!!
    this is the page i taught myself to tie it off

    Perfection Loop

    I've tied dozens of these without it ever occurring to try it to attach hooks/swivels :rolleyes:

    It's a terrifically strong knot and fast to tie, I can almost do it with one hand, I've used with up to 100lb mono, and as long as you pull it tight, it will hold very well and not slip

    I know the perfection loop, It does look like the Baja. But when I tie it like she does it slips? If the mexican bowline and the perfection loop is the same then I'm OK. AAAHHHAAA!!! I just tied the perfection loop and undid the loop to see how she crossed it and it worked. Mexican bowline= Perfection loop= Baja! Now I can sleep at night!
