    Default Anyone using No-Knot Fas-Snaps with Trout Magnets?

    I realize this is a fairly controversial subject as I'm sure most folks here
    likely prefer tying their line or leader directly to their jigs, using their knot of choice.

    But as the title implies, I was wondering if anyone uses these with TM's, and particularly for Gills.

    Access Denied

    I used to use them with tube jigs spider rigging for Crappie & YP 15+ years ago with no noticable ill affects. But never casting for gills.

    Wondering how the small size might work for casting TM's on 1/64 & 1/32 jig heads for gills.

    Thinking they may save me the headache of tying on new leader material often if I switch over to braid.

    I use them with all the jigs I fish. They will work fine on trout magnet. They come in 3 sizes and I use size 2 mostly. Best price I found was Netcraft.

    Yes, they work great for any jig combo. My eyes are not as good as they used to be, so hand tying is not a good option on the water.

    The ones I use are the Mustad snaps. Didn't know there were another one.

    I can certainly relate. After a several year hiatus from fishing I recently spooled a reel with 2# clear mono, I'll just say that tying knots with it is a challenge.
