Description

Blackbird Split Shot is great light split shot for fly and center pin fishing. This shot comes in a convenient dispenser with two sizes of shot per package, one size on each end, and a split soft rubber top to easily dispense the shot from either end.

We carry Blackbird Split Shot in two sizes. BB-1 & BB-3 contains shot in sizes BB-1 (which weighs 0.35 grams) and BB-3 (which weighs 0.15 grams). BB-2 & BB-4 contains shot in sizes BB-2 (which weighs 0.27 grams) and BB-4 (which weighs 0.13 grams).

This shot is made in Canada by Redwing Tackle, and is preferred by steelhead anglers!

Split shot is smaller that I anticipated and the slits for your line are very small. I would recommend the Thill or Water Gremlin and not the Blackbird.
Pros: dark color
Cons: small, Tough to reuse, Slit for line is small, "hard" lead
Best Uses: none
A simple solution to a classic problem

Its a simple solution to an age-old problem of handling split shot on the river. The dispenser doles out one or two split shot at a time, as you need it. No more taking out three to use two because I'm going to drop some.
Pros: Easy To Handle, Easy To Store
Cons: none
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Nymphing

These sinkers are easy to put on the line but hard to remove if you pinch them hard enough so they do not slip. I suggest that you put them on just above a knot so they can't slip down the leader, then pinch them just hard enough so that they will not fall off. This way they can be removed without too much difficulty.
Pros: Easy To Store
Cons: Limited Use
Best Uses: Deep Water, Fresh Water, Salt Water, Trolling, Shore Casting

About Me:

This shot is great for shot lines. Heavy shot on top and lighter shot working your way down the shot line. When troting your float it keeps your fly bait or jig ahead of your float. Giving it a natural drift for Steelhead. Also it does not twist line due to its roundness. GREAT PRODUCT.
Pros: Easy To Store, Easy To Handle
Cons: none
