Tie-Fast Tutorial

I recently changed out my fly line & backing on one of my reels.  I usually use a nail knot to connect the backing to the fly line and another nail knot to connect the fly line to a monofilament leader loop.

It’s been quite a while since tying a nail knot, and I have a tool to help with it called the Tie-Fast, but I lost the instructions or directions.

So, I searched around to see if there were any PDF instructions on the manufacturer’s website.  In the searching I found something much more informative.

On youtube, I found WildOnTheFly’s video on how to use the Tie Fast tool.  It’s a great little instructional video on how to tie several knots using the tool like:  nail knot, nail knot splice (blood knot), nail knot on a fly, and a snell knot (or shank tie).

If you fish and happen to have the Tie-Fast tool (or something like it), this video is worth watching.  Enjoy & thanks to WildOnTheFly!
