At last, no more squinting to thread the tippet through the hook eye and wasting valuable time on the water! The 20/20 Magnetic Tippet Threader is designed to help you thread tippet through a wide range of fly sizes. Molded from durable lightweight UV rated vinyl, the Threader uses a strong rare earth magnet to hold the fly. It works equally well on flies with or without bead heads. Includes D-ring clip to attach to lanyard or zinger cord.

Not for small hooks!

Reviewer: A viewer from Colorado

For smaller hooks (18-) and light tippets, does not work nearly well enough for me to call it easier than just threading the hook. It requires multiple attempts and adjustments to finally thread the hook. I bought this to help with smaller hooks, don't need help with large hooks. Ultimately a waste of money. The up side (worth 2 stars) is that $9 is not so much to waste - live and learn.

A must have!!

Reviewer: A viewer from Media, PA US

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>

Get the glue out first

Reviewer: A viewer from Fredericksburg, VA US

This is a great product...just make sure you get the glue out of the hook eye before you use this 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"!

Cannot get this to work with smaller flies

Reviewer: Dale M from Chicago

The hook eye for size 16 and smaller flies will simply not line up. I have to go back to the old fashioned way of tying them on by hand and use a magnifier glass for the size 20 and smaller. A big disappointment does not work as advertised.
