Lindy No-Snagg Slip Sinkers
Used Similar Rig For 20 Years
I have used tire balancing weights for this purpose for 20 plus years. I used to drill a hole in the end and attach a large swivel and they worked great but were prone to damage and line twist. When this product came out I had to give it a try, it does everything my crude version did without any of the problems and is an excellent product I would recommend to everyone. It is also great for direct line tie and using a leader for bait fishing as it will not roll in the current like egg sinkers and other types will.

Fast water friend
I am an old school bait fisherman. I like a slider rig behind a #12 swivel with about two feet of fluorocarbon leader and a #8 octopus hook. I am a firm believer in the Gulp worms-in-a-jar in natural color and they have never let me down.
So, having said all of that I fish some fast water from time to time. There are trophy trout and some salmon to be had in a river about 20 minutes form my door. Throwing a slider rig in the river is like throwing your gear in a wood chipper. You are sure to get snagged. The only way I found to defeat it is to use a slinky weight but to make a 3/4 oz slinky it ends up seven inches long and is ungainly.
As ungainly as this weight looks it truly performs. Not only did I get my rig back after the first cast; I came home with the same rig I left with! Remarkable.
Buy some if you fish fast water over rocks.
