  • Matchman hooktyer.

    It wont work any better than the first one I bought from Billy Hines about 40 years ago but it looks pretty and with a bit of luck I may not lose this one.
    Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.

        i started with the matchman hook tyer then the drennan hook tyer then the stonfo hook tyer then the sensas luxury hook tyer followed by a similar hook tyer made in england and better quality then went for the stonfo calibrone hook tyer then went back to the normal stonfo and now i have just bought the gizmo zt-lite hook tying station

          i still use both the Matchman & the Drennan ,
          Never seen a need to spend the Ridiculous prices of these New Fangled machines
          i can easily tie up to 50 hooks per hour,if need be.
          usually just re tie any i want to replace .
          Disgorgers . Am i the only angler that always buys a few every time i go to a tackle shop ?
          Always got about 10 in my box both small & large .
          At home i have a 2'6" square Tea chest full Sad Git lol

            i still take a stonfo hand held with me and the calibrone is a good hook tyer but the gizmo is the best ive used, with disgorgers i use the ringers because they float and im forever dropping things
