The last knot that we are going to tie in our barracuda rig is the non-slip loop knot. This is a great knot to learn if you plan want to connect your fly with nylon, fluorocarbon or wire bite tippet and if you are looking to give your fly a lot of natural action in the water. The non-slip lip loop knot is a fast and efficient way to tie a knot that can be used in many different salt and fresh water situations.
