When the eye of a hook is offset, the correct knot to use is a Snell knot, because the way the hook is made with the eye bent back is to ensure the Snell knot pulls the point in the right direction for the hook to penetrate. Also you have to make sure that the knot when tied has the main line coming out of the top of the eye. If it's coming out the bottom of the eye then it's pulling the hook in the wrong direction.
That being said I was fishing last week and experimented with offset eye circle hooks. I tied Snell knots and loop knots to test these theories. To my surprise, I had a lot of my fish shake off the offset eye circle hooks with Snell knots and many of them swallow the hook quickly. When I tied loop knots to my offset eye circle hooks, I had better hookup ratios and lost less fish. Also not one fish swallowed the hook. So, I am not so sold on their theory anymore. I use to adhere to it. But now I will continue to test it, as you should.
Thank you for sending in your question to The Online Fisherman.
