The Drennan Hook Tier is an essential tool for any angler who wants to tie spade end hooks with ease. The hook tier is designed to work with hooks down to a size 26, making it versatile for a variety of fishing situations.
To use the Hook Tyer, simply hold it in your left hand with the metal clamp facing upwards. Then, place your hook with the point facing upwards into the tyer and press down on the metal clamp to lock the hook into place. Next, pass your line around the clamp, making sure to keep the line held tightly at all times. Rotate the tyer away from you, ensuring that your line lays directly underneath the spade of the hook.
After one full rotation, adjust the angle of the line coming off the spade so that you can begin whipping down the hook shank. Remember to keep the line tight at all times. After between ten and fourteen turns, wrap the loose end of the hook length around the back of the brass peg located on the nose of the tyer.
At this point, a bit of saliva can help lubricate your line. Depress the clamp fully and pull gently on your hook length until the largest loop is pulled tight. Then, unlock the clamp and pull the hook length again until you have a secure knot. The Drennan Hook Tier is a reliable and easy-to-use tool that ensures your hooks are tied securely every time. With the Drennan Hook Tier in your tackle box, you can tie spade end hooks quickly and easily, allowing you to focus on the fishing.
