Tie-Fast Knot Tyer
Great Knot Tyer
This knot tyer is a great addition to any tackle box. I suspected it might take a bit of practice to use it properly, but the first knot was perfect. Works well on bare hooks and any lure. Go to You Tube and search "nail knot tool" and watch the demo; it is just as easy as it looks. If your fingers and eyes don't work the way they use too and you have trouble with secure knots, then get this little tool and leave knot troubles behind.

I added this to my fly vest (simply because I had an empty spot I needed to fill). It serves its purpose well and I have grown to like it a lot.
I would have given it 5 stars but for the documentation that accompanies the tool--it does not supply completely clear instructions on its use--it has them, and illustrations, but they are so small and poorly printed that it is almost impossible to make them out.

So Easy Even I Can Do It
The Gryp knot is so easy to tie with this that I don't care what other knots you can do with it.
I'm a firefighter and I use knots a lot. I can tie and untie some of them behind my back while hopping up and down on one leg. The kind of knots that can save your life.
But that is with big rope! The older I get, itsy bitsy fishing lines give me fits. Not anymore. I can break a line and have another hook on in no time with this tool. It is so easy to do that I bought another just in case I lost or forgot one of my most favorite fishing tools ever.

Take's a while...
This gizmo takes a while to get use to... but after you are used to typing your knots on this thing... it's smooth sailing. I have one on my fly-fishing vest to help me when my line and hands are wet from wadding.
