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

    Well, considering my very limited fishing time and contact lens problem, I am looking into getting myself the No-Knot Fas-Snap thingy.

    Have you guys used them before, the link below will show you how they look like.

    I have one and it works, but I don't like any of the knots commonly tied with it -- so I don't bother with it.

    I prefer whipped loops in my fly line -

    What if you use different sized flies or a very small fly? You still have to change the tippet and then you need to tie on a different sized one of the Fas-Snap.

    You still tie a knot to attach that to your tippet. I tried something similar many years ago. I think Cortland sold what I tried, but same idea. They were OK, but as Silver Creek has pointed out, if you fish with a wide range of fly sizes, it's not the ideal connection for all. My main issue when I tried them was losing both the snaps & my flies to snags. At least with just the fly, the loss was not as costly.
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!

    I use them when fishing for Bass, Pike, and Saltwater stuff, which means I have been using them a lot lately. I like them.

    I had one occasion where I was snagged on the bottom (I was fishing deep with a fast sinking line) and in trying to get loose I somehow managed to actually disconnect the fas-snap from the fly.

    Yes, I'm saying that I lost the fly but not the fas-nap, and the fas-snap was not straitened out.

    For awhile that worried me, but I have never had anything like that happen again.

    I am so glad that I asked you guys the experts, since nobody in the BPS reviews mentioned about the using them with different tippet size.

    I guess to be able to effectively and efficiently using one of these is to stick with the same tippet material for the longest time.

    I don't do dry fly much, for trouts I am mostly using leeches and wolly buggers size 8-12 with 30" 4x fluorocarbon tippet loop to loop to the leader. I don't often change my tippet unless it is 16" short and I can feel the abrasion in it.

    This might work for me but hopefully I can get more inputs about them form the others.

    OH, as far as tippet size goes I just use these for big streamers and poppers and I make my own leaders ending in 12 pound Flouro,

    my dad broke his finger a few summers back and and wasn't able
    to tie any knots so i brought some up for him to try. they seemed
    to work ok. he was able to switch patterns with out having me re-tie
    every time.

    I use them a lot for ice fishing.

    Fly-fishing... they don't seem practical for me, BUT I do almost 100% trout fishing and often fish small fly sizes. Even the smallest Fas-Snap is too big for use with small flies.

    Real savior for switching ice jigs though.

    They are getting good reviews in the net, I am going to stop at the BPS tomorrow to personally check them out for the right size and fit.
