Ya, it's an Atlantic salmon technique. I thought about trying a soft loop when I had all sorts of difficulty keeping fish on at Penns Creek this year, when swinging wets and streamers. When I asked around, I found out that it's an old technique that the East coast lads have used for years. I'm not sure if I heard some one else term it a "soft loop" or it's something I called it to describe the very light grip on the line.
