Default little help please

I'm tying some hoppers and just wonder if anyone has an easy way to tie the overhand knot with pheasant tail fibers for the hopper legs. My fingers aren't that small.

Just buy the pre-knotted ones! The tool works well I guess and you can find them in sewing stores, too.
See the Dave's Hopper instructions at Charlie Craven's Flybox: http://www.charliesflyboxinc.com/fly...m?parentID=147.
You can also use hackle pliers or small forceps to help get the ends through the loop which is how I usually do it.
