2.) Grab the tag end of the line and wrap it at least ten times around the hook just below the eye

3.) Take the remaining tag of the line and thread it through the loop you made at the beginning and pull the other end of the line away from the eye of the hook, the loop will close as you tighten the knot securing the wrapped line close to the eye of the hook

4.) Trim the tag end
