Nail Knot Instructions:
Step 1: Hold nail or needle, tip of fly line and backing material between thumb and forefinger. Wrap backing 6 or 7 turns. Wind carefully for a tight, smooth knot. Stick end of backing between nail and fly line.
Step 2: Remove nail. Holding coils carefully between thumb and forefinger, alternately pull both ends of backing with free hand to tighten.
Step 3: Snip off excess backing and end of fly line.
