Loon Deep Soft Weight Sinkant 1 4 5 1

Ideal for weighting the leader and to getting those flies that little bit deeper!

This charcoal-colored nontoxic, Tungsten-based product is biodegradable and reusable, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to split shot and other lead based weight. The weight and depth are easily adjustable, to make sure that a nymph always finds the bottom.

Features:

  • Tungsten putty weight
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-lead
  • Reusable
  • Charcoal color
  • Can be used as temporary bead head for nymphs

How To Use:

  • Pinch off desired amount from container
  • Apply to leader in the shape of a football at desired location
  • Dip in water to harden
  • Remove or change the size when needed

Ideal Uses:

  • Nymph Fishing

PRODUCT TIP: On hot days you can place the product container into the stream to "firm up" Deep Soft Weight to a desirable consistency. On cold days you can keep the container close to your body so it can remain pliable. Don't leave the product on your leader after you are through fishing as it can warm up and stain vests or other articles. Stays put best if placed over a knot. Select depth by positioning on your leader. Select size depending on current strength. Place deep soft just in front of your fly and it will make your fly behave like a bead head pattern adding extra depth and movement when retrieved.

I use this stuff to get nymphs and larger flies down to the bottom. It is very useful when the fly is not weighted in any way. I also use it when fly fishing for coarse fish and I do not have any split shot. It appears to stay supple for > 1 season, providing it is always kept dry and lid closed.
