Matt, I'm glad you added this video. It should help a lot of people. I have tied stingers before. I like your two nails idea and will use it. TYVM

the following just happened 2 minutes ago...

Me “Honey, come here, check this out!!”

Her, “What?!”

Me “come here!!”

Her “Uggh!” she stammers over…She watches the video but not with nearly with the same enthusiasms I am holding back

Me “what you think? Wasn’t that the coolest stinger knot you ever saw?”

Her “yeah” as she stammers back to the living room

I guess she doesn’t realize just how much money this is going to save us.

Thanx !! I now have something to do in the basement again!! I can’t wait to go buy the materials and get started…and it is so simple really

PS I’m easily entertained as long as it pertains to fishing in some manner.
Happiness is a choice.

Nice job, what a simple set up to get consistent length on all your stingers.
Thanks for posting

Good Fishing,

First off, let me say that was a very informative and excellent video!! Thanks, Matt!

Now... If you guys want a good laugh, do this...
I originally muted my puter the first time I watched this due to the TV on and the better half watching it. SO.. I clicked on the little arrow in the bottom right and turned on youtubes "experimental" close captioning which is based on voice recognition...
OMG!! Try this... See if you can understand anything Matt is doing!!! LMAO
One of my fav lines he "said" was about "avoiding the wife"!!! TOO FUNNY!!!

Thanks again, Matt!!!!
