I use these in my Pike leaders.
Dan, I still use them with other tackle, mostly spinning gear attached to a swivel, and will occasionally use them with flies for Bluefish on a wire leader.

I use the Fas-Snap brand when fishing for bass. I figure the little bit of extra metal in the front is nothing compared to all the metal the gear chuckers use.

I did have one strange thing happen when I was dealing with a snag. I suddenly broke loose and though I had broken off, but I still had the snap on the end, un-bent. I guess it got turned around on the eye and I pulled it off.

Default Re: Snap hooks?

I was using stinger hooks on jigs for pike fishing. Lost the first 2 pike due to the snap opening during the fight and losing my stinger hooks. I now use crimped sleeves to hold my stinger hooks to my jigs. I make my own stinger hook rigs.

I've never had the idea nor the inclination to use them for fly fishing.
