Micro fishing tippet connectors allow you to quickly and easily attach a snelled tanago hook to your main line.

The connector has an eye to tie it to your main line. The other end of the connector is essentially a hook with no gape. There are two ways to attach a snelled tanago hook to the Tippet Connector.

Tippet Connectors

The simple way: If you are using a tanago hook that comes with a  loop in the end of the snell, such as the Gamakatsu Ultimate or Owner Migen, just slide the loop into the "hook" part of the tippet Connector.

The complex way: You slide the red snell (assuming an Owner snelled tanago hook) into the hook portion of the tippet connector, wrap it around once or twice and slide it in again. It won't slip.

However, if you have snelled the hook yourself with fly fishing tippet material, this procedure will not hold. Tippet material is harder and slicker than the red material that comes with the snelled Owner hooks. If you snell the tanago hooks yourself, tie a loop in the end of the snell and use the simple way.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
