    Bobber Stops​

    I like to use bricklayers twine it is heavy and has a wax coating and will hold up well when it is wet.​

    Here is a shot of the cord roll

    I will take and cut a 12 inch piece, just easier to do when you go tying the loops, then I unravel the cord which gives you three pieces.

    Take one of the strings and make a loop like so.

    Now take that loop and place it on top of your monofilament or braided line, I have the line still on the pole and have it taut easer to work with, then with your fingers pinch the cord to your line.

    Now take one end of the twine and run it thru the pinched loop you are holding about 4-6 times. When completed it should look like this.

    Grab the two ends and gently pull the twine, you will see the loops coil up and form right on top of your monofilament or braided line.

    Cinch them down tight, trim the extra

    There you have it, a stop knot that can be adjusted anywhere on your line, you can always use it to mark depths or how far you need to throw out to a particular spot, with this method the monofilament or braided line does not have to be cut and everything redone.
    I have used this method for years as I enjoy tying them and sometimes you just want to mark a spot on the line and this knot will not damage your line, I keep a partial of this twine in the boat or tackle bag at all times.​

    I use rubberbands for my bobber spots. It seem to works great. Just make like a double hitch and slide apiece of rubberband throu and pull both ends of your line and you got it. But I have a small bead between the bobber and the stop. Hope you all under stand what I mean? :0a26:
