The best application for this knot is to create a loop knot in very heavy monofilament or braided, coated wire, on either a lure or live bait hook. This knot is very easy to tie and only has a few steps.
You can see step by step video animated instruction on how to tie this knot by visiting Seaguar.com
To start, tie a loose overhand knot using about 10" inches of working end protruding through the knot.
Feed the working end through the eye of the lure or hook.
Feed the working end back through the overhand knot and adjust to desired size.
Just past the first knot, make a second overhand knot around the standing line.
Tighten the two individual knots and then slide them together, making a loop just in front of the lure or hook.
Below are sequential visuals of steps 1 through 5.
