Ty-Rite Jr. Fish Hook Holder
I bought this item on a whim, don't regret it at all. Attached to a zinger by itself, that important and useful. I use it every time I switch flies stream-side. No fear of dropping a fly mid-tie into current.

As someone whos eyes are slowing degrading I can highly recommend this. Makes tying a clinch knot easier. No it doesn't make the eye of the hook larger but to not have to worry about holding the hook while I try to focus on that tiny hole is a God send. Now I don't have to use the hit and miss method.

With diminishing eyesight and a decrease in digit dexterity, the idea of wrestling with small flies and light-weight transparent line didn't seem very appealing. Then I found the Ty-Rite Jr. , the Magnetic Tippet Threader, and the Tie-Fast Knot Tyer ... small fly tying problem solved. The Tippet Threader allows a half-blind person (I'm close) to push tappered tippet through the eye of the hook on very small flies easily. Once the line is through the eye, the Ty-Rite Jr. makes tying off the lure end of the tippet a breeze. The Tie-Fast Knot Tyer makes securing the other end of the tippet to the line with a nail knot a no-brainer.

Just a handy piece of equipment that is a must for easy tying of all sizes of flies. Just got it and it works great.
