Fly line tool?

I used to have a nail knot tool that came with a needle to thread the leader into the fly line and then tie my nail knot - made for a nice, smoth transition from fly line to leader. Well, I broke mine using it for something else and lately have just used a regular needle which doesn't work as well. Any ideas on another way to do this or know where to get a new tool?

Just make a loop with a short piece of braided line to pull the tag back thru. It works well for me.

here's what I like to have for a fly line to leader connection. the tool allows you to thread the leader through the fly line and then tie your knot

I do this too. But I use it with a loop in the line - to fix the fused loop that new lines come with when it frays or gets worn. Just cut the frayed loop off, double the line back about 3/4 inch and wrap it with 6-8 winds of 4 lb test mono as if you were wrapping a guide on a rod, finishing it by using a loop of mono you wrap over to pull the tag back thru. Treat the doubled-back line loop as if it was a rod you are wrapping a guide onto, pull the tag back under it and then trim both the wrap and line tags.

I can do it with a piece of coffee stirrer (the red straw kind), but this thing is effortless, and provides a handy clippers and needle to poke out glued up fly eyes all in one.

I use a Tie-Fast tool very quick and no aggravation.
