The Eugene Sling

The same technique used in the Eugene Bend can be use also to make a loop. This knot out performs the Surgeon's knot in tying a leader to a tippet.
  1. Double the end of the line to mame a loop. Fold the loop back on itself to make a double loop. Hold every thing on the left between your thumb and forefinger.
  2. Push a pair of forceps through the double loop and twist the loop three full turns.
  3. With the forceps, grap the single loop and pull it through the double loop.
  4. Begin to tighten the knot by pulling on the single loop with your right hand and the standing line and tage end with your left. As you draw the knot snug, pause to even out the ends of the wraps. Then lubricate the knot and pull it tight. Clip the tag end about 1/16 of an inch.
