I recently ordered a medium Ghost net bag replacement (39 inch circumference at $29 total, the $5 shipping/handling is not disclosed on their website at all) to change out the net on my Brodin Pro Cutthroat net. If you read my previous post on this net you’ll understand why.
I tried to figure out how I was going to capture the process to share on this blog. Video would have been rather long and just typing the process … well … not too exciting, so what I decided to do is post the pictures of my process and add a voice recording to guide you through the pictures.
My voice recording is included below, all you need to do is play the MP3 file and follow along with the pictures which are part of this post. The audio is 8 minutes and 35 seconds long*.
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!
