skiltonian,what you like to use is a needle knot, everyone else is talking about a nail knot. two different knots. needle knot has leader going through the fly line, nail knot has leader next to fly line. both are good, all personal preference.

Exactly. No tool is necessary to tie a nail knot. This video shows both knots.

thanks bikerfish for clearing that up - each reply i kept thinking these guys just don't get it - I even put on the pic to try and clear it up. I like the needle knot due to its seemless transtion from leader to fly line.

Trust me, look for the video on the site.

IT DOES NOT GET ANY EASIER THAN THIS!!!!

Even better, I found it for you.



Jakes,

Thanks for posting this...at the risk of embarrassing myself, I will confess I have had one of these tools for ten years and never knew how to use it. Until now.

Snap!

So I guess I paid $14.00 for a needle to clean my eyes out on my flies.

Yeah the first one I bought about 12 years ago, I folded the instructions around it and kept it in a a micro double-sided plano box. Unless you know how to use it, you would think it's junk.

It is invaluable to me because I don't like to be standing for 5 minutes, getting frustrated making loops and trying to tie a knot, when I could be fishing.

I personally like the design, and I've tried others including tubes and straws, the forks at the end just seal the deal for me.

You can tie on a leader and trim it the first time, in a matter of seconds, not minutes.

I've use needle nots as well, but I don't anymore. A good tight nail knot is seemless if it is tied and trimmed well. It's personal preference though, I thought I'd put it out there for anyone who hasn't used a Tie-Fast.
