Little Tool Makes Fish Knot-Tying Easy
Attention all fishermen: If tying good knots is a problem for you, Rodney Long has a solution.
  Long, who farms near Adamsville, Alabama, says 60 percent of lost fish are due to a knot that failed. Tired of losing fish himself, he invented EZ Knot, a little plastic device that, even in untrained hands or arthritic fingers, can turn out a perfect knot every time. He used black plastic to fashion EZ Knot for a reason. "That makes it easier to see the fishing line," he notes. And the device floats, so if you drop it overboard, you can retrieve it with a net.
  He says most fishermen tie knots by hand, and the process can take a minute or more. EZ Knot can reduce that time to just a few seconds, even if you no longer have nimble fingers and keen eyesight. And it doesn't matter whether you're right or left-handed."It's a product most people don't realize they need. You can't make a mistake with it," Long says. "It is to knot tying what the pocket calculator is to math."
  You can order it from Toolite, the Ohio company that produces it, or contact Long directly. "Most people order several. Once people see how easily you're tying knots, they'll borrow them to keep," he says. One EZ Knot sells for $1.50. Shipping costs $1 whether you order one or ten EZ Knots. It's a little more if you order more than 10.
