River Drift Fishing
Salamander Sinkers snag resistant properties allows anglers to fish obstructions that would hang up traditional rigs. A host of baits can be used such as Spin ‘n’ glows, crank baits, flies, spawn, eggs yarn, and even night crawlers. Depending upon the current the angler can control the speed of the sinker by using different size weights.
Below are different Salamander Sinkers rigs for salmon fishing.
The 3/4 oz double swivel sinker with a fly or yarn is a great rig for salmon.
The 1/2 oz single swivel sinker is tied at the end of the pole line. An egg (sac) is placed on a hook tied with a Palomar knot 18 to 24 inches above the sinker. This rig keeps the bait of the bottom and in the fish strike zone.
Attach a spin- n- glo or other floating devices to a 3/8 oz sinker and catch all species of salmon.
Ted Dobbs of Lake Ontario Outdoors calls Salamander Sinkers the "ultimate trolling sinker". This is because of the recess design of the open end. This feature allows water to enter the front of the sinker and is redirected 360 degree back creating a force. This force causes the sinker to "track" in a straight line. It doesn't wobble or tumble regardless of the retrieval speed. Our 3/4 and 1 oz models are outstanding for trolling. Use them with your favorite baits.
