I've used these small No Knot Eyelets for years and they work great. I have never had one pull out from a fish. The only down side is that they may make the first several inches of your flyline sink, but that has never been a problem for me. I think this item has been discontinued, so get them while you can. they used to make them in Stainless Steel, but I haven't see them in years.

Have used similar devices years ago with no problem. These have an offset point that makes it difficult/impossible to insert more than 80%. Tried needles first to make the hole and that worked fine but inserting these with the offset point they will come out the side as you try to force them into the line. And yes I used the recommended size.

I have used these products for many years however with the small size and my aging eyes it has become difficult to insert them properly especially in small size line. this time around I used a magnifying glass and I found that using a pin from my wifes sewing kit to open up the hole in the line first it was much easier to insert the eyelet

I have used this product for 40+ years and find it to be the best way to tie leader to flyline.
I also use no-knot snapons for attaching popping bugs/bream killers to the line. I fish with two popping bugs and one bream killer and during times when they are on the beds I regularly catch 2/3 bream at the same time!
