  1. Pass the end of the line through the hook, lure or swivel. Pull about 6 inches of line through and double it back against itself. Twist 5 times.
  2. Pass end of line through small loop formed just above the eye then through the big loop you've just created. Be careful coils don't overlap.
  3. Pull tag end and main line so that coiled tightens against the eye. Again, be careful coils haven't overlapped. Trim excess.
