"Fished the Salmon River in Pineville New York for Steelhead for three days using your swivel end sinkers and didn't get snagged once on the sinker got snagged by the hook and lost hooks but not your sinker 1/4 oz. Attached is a picture of steelhead I caught using your sinkers." - T.T. -
Salamander Sinkers work great on the Kenai. Having a great 2 weeks with them instead of the Banana Sinkers. They run the bottom without dredging the line into the gravel... thus we get longer use from leaders and actually more hookups .. MY OPINION.
I went into Teds in Lynnwood WA and asked if he knew anything about it. He gave me a couple and I used them on New Years Day. Drifted them all day didn't lose it and was convinced.
Hard to hang up, my buddy and I rolled those with eggs last week,...great product!!
I had the opportunity to use a Salamander Sinker. I used a bobberdoggin' setup, a 3/4 oz BM float, and a 5/8 oz Salamander Sinker
"It is significantly bigger than a lead or tungsten version of a dropshot weight but it is supposedly more snag resistant along with giving the angler a different presentation when dropshotting. It tends to bounce around a little more by also being larger, less prone to getting caught up in cracks and crevices that tend to eat up traditional dropshot weights."" I do love it is not lead and for those fishing waters where lead is banned, this will make a great alternative".
"I fished some places I have not been able to fish with those sinkers, this was at Eastman Lake and it has boulders all over the place, I have always avoided the boulders, this time we tried it and did not lose one hook or sinker. I want to get out again on my own, but that was great. I will be using them at the Delta event this weekend. The girls had a blast, we had double hook ups, the little one was killing um all drop shot."
Captain Rob Reimers of Rustic Rob's Guide Service caught this nice striper using the 3/8 Oz Model Salamander Sinkers with one of his custom flies.
"These are a neat option to add to your tackle arsenal."

"I have had the chance to use the weights in hydrilla and they work great. I had to lighten them up for best movement, but they come thru the grass with little problem."

"I have the same Salamander Sinkers on my pole now for three years."
