Nope - not legal for the comp guys.
How are they not practical? Tie one to your butt section of the leader, and add tippet as needed, without using up any of the butt section tying knots.


They're not? I thought that's where they got the idea from?


Per FIPS Mouche rules:

"27.2. Leaders may be knotted or knotless, and continuously tapered down or level. A single loop may only be used to connect a leader to a fly line."

The catch is in the "continuously tapered" part. A tippet ring is considered a break in the taper.

Buffalo7,
The manufacture is Kipper. If you are going to try and find them on the interweb look for "Fas-snap".


Thanks, I'll check it out.

BigBronco,
I found some places that sell them, Here's one below.

I think I might have paid more than $8 for 20... got em from feathercraft.com

They work well. If I was a better caster, hinging might be an issue... but with my crappy casting I can't tell a difference

I know. Just amazed at the rules. Like we don't make fly fishing complex enough.

I know alot of guys that use them for czech nymphing right where the sighter connects to the rest of the leader. The sighters take alot of time to make so it makes sense to put a strong ring there. The sighters I usually make are made of 25-20-15lb amnesia of alternating colors.

rings

To tie large diameter line to considerably smaller diameter the Davy Wotten knot is good- better than triple surgeons.
