Default Re: No-Knot Fas-Snap, have you ever used it?

I haven't seen either of those devices in years, but I never had any problems with them, on the few times I used that borrowed rod.
Some reviewers mentioned about using a forceps to open the snap to let the hook the fly. I should let the white river guys show me on how to do it.
