A good fishing knife will have a knot needle, like the one in the CASE knife above. Those old knives are pricey, but a similar needle isn't. Put a sewing needle in a piece of cork (for safety) and keep it handy in your vest.

Default Re: Knot in my Fly Line

Ive never gotten a knot in my fly line but I have worked out some serious knots from my furled leaders using a tooth pick. I just sat down a few weeks ago and got one out that had been there since last fall and had seen some heavy action and fish in between.

Today I swapped in some new backing and cleaned fly lines. Operating at my usual deftness, I created some real monster ball-ups.
I had these special forceps hanging around for a while. I don't know where I acquired them, but they are just what the doctor ordered for getting knots untied.

That is a towel clip, used to hold sterile drapes around the surgical site in the OR.

Well technically they hold the towels which the sterile drape goes over, if you put the towels clips on the drapes they wouldn't be sterile with a hole in them anymore

I fully expect a dr slick markup soon though.
