Two In One
With all the gear anglers can accumulate these days, tackle bags can get heavy, causing them to be quite cumbersome. In an effort to shave off a little weight from my gear bag, I came up with a solution to minimize the amount of sinkers I carry. The method is very simple and doesn't call for any major tools. I took a standard pyramid sinker that I use for surf-fishing and drilled a small hole in the bottom. Now I have a sinker that serves two purposes and only have to carry the one modified version. I attach the sinker by the wire loop on the flat end when fishing in the surf, and when drift-fishing, simply attach the sinker to my line through the pointy (modified) end.
