    If you have an indicator that uses a wooden toothpick to secure it to the leader/tippet that will serve as ur line twister.
    No need for an extra toothpick.

    Well that's just too freaking great. He has definitely tied 3 of those before because that was quick.

    Good video. I remember buying a Dennison Blood Knot Tool, many years ago, that basically did the same thing he is doing with a toothpick. As he says in the video, the toothpick is much cheaper.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Well then you will love this, were flipping my buddy **** for buying the blood knot tool but he was all happy he could tie one on the river.

    Few weeks later were on the river and he couldn't remember how to use the damned thing , we all got a good laugh out of that

    Hey Brian, that's certainly an interesting way to do it. It takes me a while to get through the blood knot sometimes but I get it done. I tried tying one this evening using the method in the video and it worked well for the most part. You can certainly tie the knots fast that way. What I struggled a little bit with was removing the pick. I can see myself trying that whilst on the water and watching the picks float down the river or having it drop inside my waders and poke me as a reminder of my dexterity. I'll give it a go a few times before I reserve judgement on whether or not to dismiss it. Old habits die hard I suppose.

    Good thinking, El Jefe! Related to the knot tool thread on this board, I have a half of a WD-40 tube I use for tying nail knots, and it would work great for a "toothpick substitute." I wouldn't have thought of that if not for El Jefe's idea.

    I tried it out last night and I actually tied two decent blood knots. The method really works pretty slick. Now I didn't do it anywhere as fast as he did. The other thing is that is seemed I could have used an extra pair of hands to hold on to tag ends and pull ends through and hold my lines. But, that will probably come with practice.
