The Gram Series is designed for use with fly rods. It is outstanding for switch and spey fishing. It will keep the rod in constant contact with fly. No indicator float is needed. Feel every strike the instant it occurs. The sinkers keep the bait near the bottom in the fish strike zone. They are available in 2.0 3.0, 4.0, and 5.0 gram models. The 2.0 and 3.0 are designed for still water and the 4.0 and 5.0 work best in current.

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 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 model is outstanding for trolling. Use it with your favorite baits.
Otter's Soft Milking Egg
The Otter's Soft Milking Egg work great with Salamander Sinkers. The cylindrical body of the sinkers is perfect for drifting over rocks while keeping the bait in the fish strike zone. The soft plastic shape precisely mimics natural fish eggs. When used with a 2 to 3 ft leader the rig is a fish catching machine. The Gram Series sinkers are designed to function is clear, shallow water with little current. For swifter current consider the 1/8 or ¼ oz model.
