There is a tool, but I have always used a fine tipped tweezers. I would imagine a small crocheting needle would work as well as the knot tying tool. There are a bunch of youtube video's on the subject.

1)Make a loop in the fibers.
2)Put tip of tweezers through loop.
3)Pinch fibers with tweezers tip
4)Pull fibers back through loop with tweezers tip.

Hopper Leg Knot Tying Tool, Fly Tying Tool


Good luck, Tony
