This little tool can help a lot when it comes to tying fly fishing knots, especially the nail knot. If you are one of many people who have trouble with this tricky knot, this tool can really save you some time and aggravation on the river. The nail knot is typically used to connect the leader to the thick fly fishing line. This knot is typically tied using a nail (that is obviously how it got its name), but you wont have to mess with nails if you own this handy contraption. The tie fast knot tying tool is small enough to fit in your vest and forget about until you need it and cheap enough to buy for only the few times per year you will need it.
This tool can be a little tricky to use until you get the hang of it, but the included instructions are easy enough to follow (although they aren’t perfect). I have created a video below for you to see how this product works and it might help you decide if this is something you want to invest your hard earned money into. I can say from experience that it is much easier tying the nail knot with this tool than it is with a nail.
