An connection apparatus for fishing tackle that is adapted to allow the securement of the apparatus to a fishing line by the half-hitch, overhand knot or any other low dexterity knot through the use of at least one dual conical bores passing through the body of the apparatus. The apparatus generally incorporates another fishing tackle article such as a hook or split ring but can also be utilized alone when made of a suitable floating material. The configuration of the dual conical bores in relation to each other and in relation to the linear axis of the apparatus, lends itself to different purposes and different methods of securing different fishing tackle articles to the connection apparatus. With the use of a simple linear connector, two connection apparatuses may be adjoined to allow fishing lines of different sizes to be connected.
