Hands Holding Fishing Line And A Knot

ADVANTAGES OF HAVING A KNOT TYING TOOL

Tying a secure fishing knot is a crucial part of angling. However, some anglers, especially beginners, find it hard to manually tie even the most basic knots. Luckily, there’s a way around this: fishing knot tying tools. Yes, you read that right. They are a great way to get a little help. But, if you’re still not convinced, here are some of the advantages of knot tying tools that may change your mind.

FASTER AND EASIER

Some anglers spend a good amount of time trying to manually tie their fishing knot. Some knots are unforgiving, requiring you to start all over again if you don’t do them right the first time. This can be extremely frustrating. Knot tying tools can be a great time saver for those who struggle with fishing knots and even those who don’t.

THEY’RE VERSATILE

Most fishing knot tying tools are very versatile and can be used for all types of fishing line, so you don’t have to worry about having to buy a different knot tying tool for different fishing line types.

NO MORE LOOSE KNOTS

Has this ever happened to you? After patiently waiting for a bite, you finally feel something pull on your line. You’ve caught a fish only to lose it on the retrieve because of a poor quality knot.

By using a fishing knot tying tool, you eliminate human error, thus reducing the chances of losing your catch due to a loose knot.

THEY’RE PORTABLE

If you’re going to argue that you’ve got no room in your tackle box for another fishing tool, you may as well admit defeat now. Fishing knot tying tools are known for being small and light enough to slip in a pocket.

WIDE VARIETY

Not all knot tying tools are the same. Some are better than others and some can tie more knot types than others. Take a good look around before you purchase.

Knot tying tools are awesome. I love mine. There’s a place in any fisho’s tackle box for a knot tying tool and they are especially useful for beginners who are not so skilled at tying knots and those who suffer from shaky hands, arthritis or poor vision.
