"We used this sinker to drift beads and flesh flies to trout and char in 2019. We like -We like how it doesn't snag in between rocks as easily as split shot. We used it primarily on spinning gear. Testers also reported using them on fly gear, and said they were effective, especially in places calling for shorter cast. We used the 4- and 5- gram models in flowing water and intend to use the samaller sizes during the next stillwater opportunity.
"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."

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've had a chance to fish them my self. The loop size is adequate and the loops seem strong. The sinkers themselves seemed to perform extremely well. I thought they would snag more than conventional split shot upon looking at them for the first time. This was definitely not the case! i didn't lose a single set up!""
"I've fished with the Gram Series Double Loop since they came out. They keep the fly on the bottom and they don't snag.""

"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."
