Today’s post will deal with a fly fishing accessory I recently discovered while searching for some fly line the other day on the net. I am referring to the No Knot Fast Snap, which enables the fisherman to save on leaders. The Fast Snap simply ties into the leader after you have used of the tippet end of your leader from fly ties. It serves as a tiny loop so you can eliminate the blood knot altogether and keep using the leader for a longer period of time. I talk to a fly fishing representative at Bass Pro about the fast snap and he told me that he used it and likes the fact he doesn’t have to tie but one knot as opposed a couple when attaching his tippet. I am one who uses a lot of flies when I am fishing. I use 6 to
of tippet every time I attach the fly to the line. I think with the fast snap
it gives me more time to be fishing. Has anyone out there used this little
gadget? It would be worth a try to see if the positives reviews are for real.
The following is a description from Bass Pro
Change hooks, jigs, lures or flies in just seconds with the No-Knot Fas-Snap and enjoy more time fishing. The innovative, lightweight No-Knot Fas-Snap is designed to be tied directly to your tippet or mono line. No-Knot Fas-Snap will not inhibit casting or presentation and it even floats with a dry fly! 30 per pack
I thought I would throw this in---My wife and I have been on a moving spree for the past four days. We have been helping our Son-in-law and Daughter move into another house. I guess you guys have notice I have been absence from the blog, well that is why. I didn’t need any gym this past week, I got all the gym I could handle and more with the move event. When your kids ask you to do something you always say yes---it did put a damper on the fishing.
