Blackbird Swivels by Redwing Tackle are ultra light and super small, ideal for connecting leaders to the main line.

Whether fishing for Steelhead, Bass, Walleye or other fresh water game fish, these are perfect for any light tackle application.

We carry these swivels in size nine, and they come in packs of ten or fifty. These are very small but strong swivels. They measure slightly less than 5/16" in overall length.

Sault Ste. Marie, MI

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I use these swivels when connecting main line to my leader while I am float fishing for salmon/steelhead or whatever. Anyone who fishes steelhead in clear water knows that the stealthy you are the more fish you will catch. These swivels are the smallest I have found and have never once been the cause of a lost fish for me, and that includes some very large salmon. I will never tie a mono to mono knot again as long as these swivels are around.

These tiny swivels are perfect for the top of spreader rigs and for connecting leaders to mainline. They are very small and black, probably go completely unnoticed by fish. I would use a larger swivel for line-twist prevention, these are best used for line terminations and transitions.
