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.
