June 4th & 5th I was fishing the Yellow Breeches in PA. The weather was overcast; and around 7pm when the hatch started I could not see to thread my 7x tippet through a #18 hook. Resulting in 0 fish during the hatch. After I got off the stream I went to the local fly shop looking for theaders; the owner showed me this product. I tied a #20 hook with 7x tippet in the shop first try. The 20/20 is very easy to use and hook eye lines up everytime on it's own using a strong magnet. I used the 20/20 the next night on the stream with the same success I had in the shop. Result; numerous fish during the hatch. The 5 other guys on the trip with me went out and bought one the next day before we left Town.
I will never go to the stream without one of these threaders. The best $10 I have ever spent. <i>J. Stockard comments: ... and we're glad he got it, even though it wasn't from us!</i>
This is a great product...just make sure you get the glue out of the hook eye before you use this product...it will drive you crazy! I gave it a 4 because they haven't incorporated a pin to clean the hook eye out!
Being an engineer, I can appreciate ingenuity, especially when it serves a purpose to make things simple. This product, although I had my doubts, works as advertised. It will give us older guys more "line in the water time"!
