Swimerz Lead Egg & Bean Sinker

The primary purpose of any sinker is simply to be able to present and hold a bait, lure or fly at a given depth within the water column.  Egg sinkers, also known as bean sinkers, are used in rigs intended to fish off or near the bottom.  The egg sinker allows the fish to pick up the bait without feeling any resistance as the line is able to move freely through the central hole presenting your offering where many fish spend a lot of timeā€¦ on or near the bottom.  Egg sinkers are also a streamlined shape suitable for effective casting from the bank.
