To tie the nail knot by hand is very difficult. Therefore some anglers use a nail knot-tying tool. It is one of those deceptively simple, clever, useful, and easy to use tools that many seem to own. This tool also seems to fly “under the radar” in terms of public awareness. It allows fishermen to tie any size monofilament, fluorocarbon line or fishing braid to any size fishhook, fishing lure or lead core in just seconds. With it, you can tie various knots, but it is best known for the nail/gryp knot. It can’t come untied because the untied end is gripped by all the turns of the knot. This knot will not slip as the tag end goes under all the wraps.
