No-Knot Fas- Snap

15 posts in this topic

Anyone use these? Are they ok to use with all jigs or do they hinder the jigs preformance?

I prefer to not use clips. Many lures work best with the lure held at certain angle. I think knot position is a big part of it.

Just my opinion.

I use them on all my jigs etc, When my hands get cold I cannot seem to make a new knot. I figure that the time lost while re-tying a jig vrs. clipping a new one on is in my favor. Of course I am jigging constantly and if I had just a vertical presentation (jig + minnow + dead stick)I tie those directly on.

Of course you're not going to be able to change knot position on a jig with them, but for quick changing lures I thought it would be the cats bark, and used them for awhile with good sucess, but stopped because of lost lures. Somehow every now and then they would un-snap from the lure.

I use them a lot and I like em. Your jigs really come alive and if its a horizontal jig it will stay that way. They can be a little tough to change lures sometimes but, its easier than re-tying every time you want to change jigs. For the price I would say give them a try

I use them on all my rods and really like them. Whether I deadstick or jig they seem to do the job.

I use these lil dudes all the time.. at certain times depending what specie i am fishing for, how cold my finger tips are,from fishing out in the elements.. I have never lost a lure, jig , blade bait, or spoon.. They make these in differant sizes.. I use these snaps while jiggin for walleyes over differant structure if i am on the move on a nice day.. as far as taking away action from a lure, you can apply a small swivell to a number of your favorite lures etc.. then just "snap" on to that.. But, to answer the question, if you give them a try you may like them.. I like to loop through the eyelet twice.. Small dia. but have patience..

DOnt care for them. I am always "freshening" up the bottom ft or 2 of line after a couple dozen fish so I just as well be tying to the jig when I do.

For trying to pattern fish, I use it. For hooking finicky fish, I don't. I don't like the little point that sticks out of it, sometimes stops the hook from penetrating. I use a rather soft hook setting, so this contradicts my hooksetting style. My preference is using Spro hyper snaps.

Lead head style jigs I alway tie direct - especially if designed for a horizontal presentation.

Otherwise I use the quick staps on all my spoon style and swim lures. I like to experiment with the whole arsenal of lures, so it is not uncommon for me to switch out lures quite a bit - the snaps mean a lot less wasted time (especially in cold conditions with hard to see 2# diameter line).

If I remember correctly the No-Knot is kinda stiff so getting them on & off can be tricky using your fingers, especially cause they're so small. Often times I use my forceps to make it easier. I also have another brand (not sure it it is gander) that is much easier to work with and had a little wider loop to allow more room for the lure to move freely.

What he said ^^^

I do like to tie dirrect to my smaller lead head jigs when dancing plastics, but with minnows or on set lines, the snaps get the go.

    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?
