    Tie a short tube 1/4" or so, just whip some squirel hair on a tube. Push a heated needle though the tube at right angles upward seems the modern way, though I have some at right /left.
    Thread through the new hole.

    Cast it out and it will skate on the surface.

    Have not used this method for some years but I vaguely remember just putting a half hitch over the tube end.
    Slipsteam type with the swelled end.
