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.
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.

Domestic shipping is $4, via USPS First Class Mail (unless ordered with an item that must go via Priority Mail, and which has a higher shipping charge). The charge is added to your order automatically.
Please note: All packages are shipped via USPS. If you have a PO Box, please list ONLY the PO Box in your address, not the PO Box and your street address.
The charge for international shipping depends on the destination country, the weight of the package, the overall length of the package and the value of the package.
International purchases may be subject to import duties and taxes. I cannot keep track of all import regulations in all countries written in all languages. Understanding and paying import duties and taxes is the responsibility of the buyer.
TenkaraBum.com no longer ships to the UK. The new VAT regulations are too onerous for a one-man shop that rarely ships anything to the UK anyway. I apologize.
The US Postal Service has suspended all shipments to Australia. There are two alternatives. One is the same price as the USPS had been (as calculated at checkout) but may take 3-4 weeks. The other is UPS, which is considerably faster (3-5 days), but also considerably more expensive. If you want the faster, UPS shipment, I will send an invoice for the required amount.
Canadian buyers have the option to prepay import duty and VAT (which also eliminates the CAN$9.96 Canada Post charge for collecting the import duty and VAT). The prepayment option costs a flat US$6.95, which can yield a substantial savings for larger purchases. This option is only for packages under $400 in value AND 24" or less in length.
