The Anglers Ace blood knot tool was explicitly designed by someone who fly fishes. Charlie wanted something easy and portable and couldn’t find what he was looking for online. So being a tinkerer and inventor, he made a device he wanted to use.
He took some of the common complaints of other blood knot tools and improved them by making a brand-new easy-to-use blood knot tool. Common complaints of other tools include portability. Many people have to use other tools sitting at a table or desk.
The other tools were made of metal and were quickly lost if taken outside because they were heavy or too small and sank into the water. Or it was just too small to use when actually outside fishing.
The Angler’s Ace blood knot tool is a credit card size and can fit in your fishing vest pocket. If you drop it in the water while fishing, it floats. If you drop it in the grass or on the shore, it’s easy to spot because of its bright colors. It’s easy to use outside and doesn’t require you to set it on a desk.
