The Drennan Hook Tyer enables you to tie spade end hooks with ease, right down to a size 26 if required. Simple to use instructions are included.
Hold the hook tyer in your left hand with the metal clamp facing upwards. Place your hook, point upwards, into the tyer and press down on the metal clamp to lock the hook into place. Pass your line around the clamp. Ensure that the line is held tight at all times and rotate the tyer away from you ensuring your line lays directly underneath the spade of the hook. After one full rotation, alter the angle of the line coming off the spade so as to begin whipping down the hook shank. Remember to keep the line tight at all times. After between ten and fourteen turns wrap the loose end of the hook length around the back of the brass peg located on the nose of the tyer. At this point, a bit of saliva will help lubricate your line. Depress the clamp fully and pull gently on your hook length until the largest loop is pulled tight. Unlock the clamp and pull the hook length again until your hook and line becomes free. Trim the loose ends to finish.
