     A popular method of forming a loop, or loops, in the line above the sinker is to use the Dropper Loop.  This draws into a knot that stands out at right angles to the line.  If desired, the loops can be made long enough to have a hook set on them for use as a home made mackerel, cod or haddock rig.
To tie a Dropper Loop:
  • Form a loop in the line.
  • Take hold of one side of the loop, and make 6 or more turns around the line itself.
  • This is the tricky part - keep open the point where the turns or twists are being made.
  • Take hold of the other side of the loop, and pull it through the center opening, use a finger in this loop so that it is not lost.
  • Hold this loop between your teeth.  Pull gently on both ends of the line, making the turns gather and pack down on either side of the loop.
  • Draw up the knot by pulling the lines as tightly as possible.  The turns will make the loop stand at right angles to the line.
Follow the fishing and boating knot links to the right for more clear pictures, directions and some animations on how to tie several popular fishing and boating knots.

     The links to the left provide current marine and local weather reports, extended local weather reports, tide charts and the U. S. Coast Guard Navigation Center, featuring GPS information, DGPS sites (which are a must for anyone with a differential GPS), LORAN-C information, Local Notice to Mariners plus a boat load of miscellaneous navigational links and my Site Map.  Although most of the links to the left provide local information, my out of state visitors can also find nationwide marine and weather information.

      The remaining links to the right have my Boating, Fishing, Fish Species, Fish Fileting and Tackle Tips pages.  Following those are my Search Engine pages, one with short descriptions and another in a table form, plus my Research Page.  Last but not least, is my Doll House Gallery featuring the Farmhouse and The Garfield!  These keep me busy in the winter.

     This page is best viewed at a resolution of 800 x 600.

     As you visit my pages you will notice I love animation.  Feel free to copy any of the animations.

     Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are having trouble locating marine, boating, fishing, tackle information or have any questions!
