New Dragging Sinkers


As I mentioned in a previous post, my number one fishing goal for 2018 was to get better at dragging.  Over the last several months, I have not only spent a great deal of time actually on the water dragging, but I have also put a lot of time into creating the perfect dragging sinker for my needs. It wasn't an easy process to reinvent the wheel. There were a lot of failed attempts and lots of terminal tackle that was lost in my efforts. Ultimately, it paid off in the end though.

I finally came up with a sinker that I am 100% happy with. The sinker has a long, tubular design that is weighted on one end and floats on the other which prevents it from falling down in between rocks and crevices on the river bottom as it drags along. It is made from a material that naturally floats so there is no need for trapped air inside the tube for them to work properly. This material also remains pliable in the cold so it doesn't have a coiling effect like plastic tubing.

If you are interested in learning how to make these sinkers for yourself, I have written a book on how to build them. In this book, I list all the materials you will need, provide step by step instructions with pictures, go over the terminal tackle on my dragging rig, and also give a few bonus tips to help you be more successful on the water. There is also a link in the book for a special video I made where I walk you through the process of how to build these sinkers. The book is available on Amazon through the link below.


You will be seeing a lot of these sinkers in my videos over the next couple months. I have caught a lot of great fish while dragging this summer and have several videos already uploaded and scheduled on YouTube. I hope you have as much success with them as I have had.
