This very useful little tool is in the form of a needle with an elongated eye, the line is threaded through the eye and pulled towards the blunt end where it is trapped by the taper of the eye. The pointed end is then passed through all the rod rings, pulling the line after it. Should you drop it, it will not be pulled back through the rings – which is an advantage when threading a fly rod with heavy fly line behind the leader.
A quick and easy line threader for micro guides, fly rods, lure rods.
This item is an essential for every tackle box, even if you can still tie spade end size 24′s to 8oz hook lengths by hand under the stairs…! It will speed up the threading of any rod, particularly in bad light.
