Tippet Rings

Anybody ever use tippet rings? It seems like they'd save me a fair amount of tippet, and be pretty convenient. I'm having trouble finding a source, though. Any advice on where I can get them for a reasonable price?

Check ebay as well. The ones from ebay usually don't come on the snap holder but you can put them on a safety pin or snap swivel.

Get the small (1.5 - 2mm) ones for dry flies, any size for nymphing. Even the "large" are still really small.

They're out of stock at Performance Flies and Cabela's have them on back order. They must be very popular.

J. Stockard has them in stock - good price, too. Link

Flyfisher's Paradise had several packs this past Friday, and the Heritage Shop on the LL had lots of them too. Both places had the Angler's Image brand (?), and were like $6 for a pack of 10.

I mainly nymph fish and I use 3 mm sterling silver close D rings from a bead supply shop. I color them with a black sharpie. I think they were thirty five cents each. Also, I changed the shape from round to oval.

i have never used them and they do seem expensive. i am not the smartest guy in the world but wouldn't a small barrel swivel work just the same for nymphing. Just an observation I made, 10 tippet rings for $4.99 or 72 barrel swivels for $4.49.

barrel swivel


Oh, sorry if i offended anyone, am I allowed to mentioned barrel swivel in a fly fishing forum? LOL!

I don't get it, and don't want to get it, but I saw these being used by someone on another forum and thought some of you might want to give them a try:
Jump Rings
I hope it goes without saying, but I have no financial interest.

don't be silly. i use barrel swivels however the ones you have posted are pure #censor#. these guys are talking about tippet rings that that will float on the surface for dry fly presentations. having said that, as someone mentioned above, one would likely benefit from using a sharpie to knock the flash off of tippet ring. if you want to use a barrel swivel as redrockgrizzly has suggested FOR NYMPHING (which I do) then use a higher quality Mustad or Raven.
