no knot fas snaps

Has anyone ever used the no knot fas snaps instead of retying?
I had a guy tell me the other day they worked great, strong, and did not effect the flies action.

This is flyfishing. Part of the deal is learning a few knots.

I assume you are talking about retying a hook, fly, or plug onto the leader. I don't use the product you mentioned.

I use a bowline knot to attach all my hooked items. This knot is used extensively in sailing, which I do frequently. Therefore I can tie this knot quickly and blind if needed.

Snaps Pretty Good

These gadgets work pretty well. Esp good for cold weather or hands that have seen a few miles and mishaps. Need the LARGE size for salt - even that is a little small.

I never thought of using a bowline to attach hooks/flies. I can tie that one blindfolded as well. Do you use it on heavy leader/tippet as in 30 lb or better?

I was thinking of the fas snaps for very quick fly changes.As far as knowing how to tie a few knot, I think I may know too many.I even have a few I made up myself.We use a bowline knot to train bird dogs with, thats right bird dogs.Tie the brass collar snap on the check cord with a bow line.When the dog goes on point , you walk ahead to flush the bird.Holding the check cord. If the dog tries to creep up you throw a little loop down the check cord and when it gets to the dog , the bowline pops him under the chin . You say whoe just as this happens.Teaches them to be steady to wing and to keep their head up so they can see where the bird goes.
Sorry, I forgot. this is flyfishing. LOL
Oh yea, The little saying for tieing a bowline is, make a hole, then the squirrel come out of the hole, goes around the tree, and back in the hole.Thats a reminder until it gets to be second nature.
