I am sitting here today watching for tornados and straight-line winds headed this way. We are under a tornado watch until midnight. This really makes for a nervous situation so I thought I might com my nerves by sharing a post with all of you. How many of us have problems threading the tippet through the eye of those tiny size 28-30 files? I came across this neat little item the other day at one of the local fly shops in Birmingham. It’s the 20/20/ Magnetic Tippet Threader which makes threading those little flies a breeze. Here is how it works. You simply place the fly in the depression with the eye of the fly perpendicular to the groove. Once you have positioned the fly slide the tippet down the groove towards and through the eye about an inch or two. Grab the excess tippet on either side of the fly and lift from the threader and tie your knot. It is as simple as that. There is also a D-Ring that comes with the threader so one can attach it to your vest. The threader is priced at 8.00 which in the fly fishing industry is a bargain. I have found it works great on flies with or without beadheads. The little magnet positioned at its base is strong enough to hold the fly even in the strongest winds. I am really sold on this product because of the simplicity and cost. Everyone say a prayer for us here in Alabama today, because we are in for some horrible weather this afternoon and tonight.
