Nail Knot Tying Instructions - The Tie-Fast Combo Tool

Contrary to popular opinion that strange appendage on your nippers is not for cleaning your fingernails. Epic Ambassador Kunio Onishi shows how to tie a nail knot with the Tie-Fast Knot Tool

  1. Place the leader on top of the tool with 6 inches of tag end forward and hold it under your thumb between the metal tips. 
  2. Make 4 or 5 wraps around the tips of the tool working back toward your thumb.
  3. Feed the end of the fly line though these wraps
  4. Feed the tag end of the leader back through the coils and back out the tip of the tool.
  5. Hold everything gently in place and give a short quick tug on the tag end of the leader. The knot should pop off the tool and onto the fly line. Make any adjustments needed and tighten down the knot firmly. Trim tag end and fly line close to the knot.
     

    The Tie-Fast Combo Knot Tool is available here

    Of all the fly fishing nippers we've used over the years these are by far the best. They come with an instruction booklet, an excellent hook file, great nippers that can be sharpened, the knot tool attachment and an eye cleaner. Get the real deal made in the USA and not a cheap knock off.
