Most anglers tie flies onto tippet by repeatedly stabbing the tippet directly at the tiny opening in the eye of the hook. There is a more natural way that eliminates frustration, is faster and does not require magnification.
First, cut the end of the tippet at an angle to create a narrower sharp point for easier insertion into the small hole.
Second, do not stab the tippet into the eye. Instead, lay the end of the tippet against the eye with the eye canted slightly towards the tippet. Slowly and gently pull the tippet with light pressure against the eye until the end of the tippet bumps into the hole. Push the tippet through!
