A true distance lead for when casting that bit further is required. I use this inconjuction with a Pulley Rig as the bait tucks in nicely behind the flat head cutting down wind resistance. They cast true and straight and will without doubt add distance to your casting. See below and also terms and Conditions for postage costs.

Without doudt these leads will help get your bait out further than any other leads.

The Bomber Grip lead is a new design in grip leads, more compact body, casts like a dream and each leads is almost spot on weight wise, the only one I found to be out was the 4oz and that came in at 3.9oz (109.2g instead of 112g) and that could have been down to the lead mix.

Each lead is manufactured with a short tail wire with a built in bait clip. The advantage of using this type of bait clip comes into it`s own when using a larger bait, Mackerel Fillet, Peeler Crab, large Worm and Squid bait. Some of the other leads on the market with a built in bait clip are not suitable for bulkier baits as they hang up in the bait clip and do not release leaving your with no chance of catching a fish. These clips ALWAYS release you hook and bait, large of small, they ALWAYS release the hook.

Perfect 2oz grip lead for fishing close in shore, esturaries and sandy beaches with a really light rod. Perfect with Anyfish flatfish rod. Have used to great effect in Shoreham esturary this year for Flounder, Bass and Eels using the Anyfish 2 + Bait.

The original grip leads designed by DCA for the grip wires to colapse then the angler strikes it out of the sea bed. Original grip wires were fixed and stay in place making it a bugger to wind them in until the lead came up off the bottom. This design made winding in a dream. Just as effective today as they were when the first came out at least fourty years ago. Available in 3oz, 4oz, 5oz, 6oz, 7oz. See options.

Pyrimid leads have been around for many years, I remember them being very popular in the 60`s for fishing for flatfish on sandy beaches. The beauty of them is that they are used to fix a bait to the sea bed without it rolling around the bottom. You cast it out and wind the slack line in until it is amost tight then put the rod in the rod rest and leave it for 5 minutes approximately so that the action of the sea buries the lead in the sand, you then carefully tighten you line till the rod tip bends. When you get a bite, in the event you strkike but miss the fish, you just put the rod down leaving it for five minutes and repeat the first process all over again. With a grip lead, once the wires pull out it simply rolls in the tide where as the Pyrimid lead resets itself on the sea bed.

Sold in packs of 5 or 10, for larger quantites contact us by phone or email. Great for Flounder fishing in the esturies

Taking the idea from Carp Fishing I came up with this idea having experienced hundreds of times when you complete a drift whilst Plaice fishing and are told `Lines up` only to find on when the rig comes to the surface a tangled mess and the answer to why I have not had a bite. So I looked at developing a tangle free rig which would not break the bank, would ensure I maintain contact with the bait at all times, staying on the bottom and minimising the risk of tangles and what I have produced does all of these things and it does it extremely well. Line travels freely through the tube keeping me in contact with the bait at all times, the tube protects the line as the lead is dragged across the bottom and even when dropping down quicker than I would like causing the trace to back up to the leader, when the lead and rig hit the bottom the hook link / spoon just slides down the tube and over the lead and straightens out perfectly rather than catching on the Zip Slider or Tube Boom / snap swivel and tangling to the extent you are not fishing for the entire drift.

I have used this Inline Lead for catching Plaice, Turbot and Brill and in all cases rig tangles were reduced by 95% at least,  ensuring I caught more fish than I normally would and I was presentling the bait properly almost all the time. My catch rate significantly increased when using these leads.

Watch Leads have been used for at least fifty years that I know of. They disappeared for many years almost only being seen on hand lines for crabbing used by holiday makers. Now however they are back, with the increased interest in Turbot fishing and Plaice fishing certainly along the south coast has seen the rise in use of the watch lead again. Designed to disturb the sand / sea bed as it is dragged across it as the boat drifts creating small puffs of sand as it goes attracting the attension of the inquisitive Plaice and Turbot.

Ideal for use on sand banks / sandy bottom, don`t go Plaice / Turbot fishing without them.

Scrap lead price is going through the roof, up 70% so far this year so price has increase slightly I am afraid.

The bottom fishing lead for the last twenty five years, used for almost all types of bottom fishing static and drift fishing. It simply sinks like a stone and lays on the bottom. Due to its shape it does not roll about the sea bed which when fishing rough grond or wrecks is what you require to prevent as much as possible getting hooked up on the bottom.

The Aquapedo is basically a torpedo shaped lead designed for bottom fishing from a boat. Used for both static and drift fishing as well as a popular Mackerel lead as well. Available in three sizes, see options.

This lead was originally designed by DCA and has stood the test of time.

This is another very old design that has been around for at least sixty years that I know of. A very old friend of mine died a few years ago and his wife gave me his tin of moulds. In the tin there was a selection of boat cone moulds made beautifully out of cast iron. Each mould weigh a tone before it even has lead poured into it but the craftmanship is amazing.

These leads are available in 16oz, 24oz and 32oz. If you want to nail a bait to the bottom, use a Boat Cone lead.

Gilling Leads or Aquazoom Leads as the original name was are used for Drift Fishig over wrecks and rough ground with Sidewinder Sandeels, Redgill Sandeels etc. The slim profile of the leads minimises the effect of the current and cuts down on the lead drifting away on the current.

Without doubt, the Cannon Ball Leads offer the least resistance to the current when drift fishing and when used in conjunction with braid mainline allows you to cut down the size of the lead used when Gilling for Cod, Pollack and Bass. For example, using mono on a given day would require a 10oz lead to get you into the catching area and holding your lure there without it drifting away. Using Braid and a Cannon Ball Lead would allow you to use an 8oz or possibly a 6oz Cannon Ball Lead and still remain in the catching zone. Put simply, Cannon Ball Leads help you maximise the sport of catch and fighting the fish and not a bloody great weight !

Available in 8oz,10oz,120z,16oz. More sizes to come shortly. Use Cannon Ball leads for Gilling over the wrecks and get away with using a lighter lead as there is less resistance to the current with a cannon ball due to the smaller surface area.

Drilled Bullets, Ball Weights, Float Fishing Weights. They are known by many names but are primerily used for float fishing in the sea with large slider floats to cock these large floats correctly.

Available in three sizes, see options.

The clue is in the name but hese Trolling Leads are far more versatile then one would think. In the smaller sizes they are ideal for a casting weight when lure fishing from rocks with various soft plastic lures such as jelly worms for Pollack fishing. Simply tie one end to your mainline and add one, two, three feet of hook length to the swivel on the other end. Add a hook and your soft plastic and off you go, cheap lure, cheap leads and you will not be angry of you loose a bit if gear. The rig is simple and uncomplicated, easy to use and effective as well.

We also use these leads int he larger sizes as Bottom Crawlers for Plaice fishing. Again, they are virtually tangle proof and keep your bait nailed to the bottom and help you catch a lot of Plaice. They also do the jog that the name implies, add to your mailing and use for Trolling lures inshore for Bass.  Available in various sizes, see options.

An egg shaped version of the Drilled Bullet but in a wider range of sizes. In the very small sizes they can be used to cock a small sliding float when fishing for Mullet etc in the sea (leads under the weight of 1oz CANNOT BE USED IN AN ESTURARY, IT IS ILLEGAL). They can also be used to nail you baited hook to the bottom when drifting for Plaice, Turbot and Brill. Simply put a small egg sinker in top of your attractor beads and it will holds you bait hard on the bottom in the current.

Available in multiple sizes, see options.

An old pattern we have brought back for both fishing on the drift for Plaice and Turbot and also fishing from the shore onto sandy beaches especially surf beaches when the Star Lead digs in and grips the bottom really well.

When fishing on the drift dragging the leads across the bottom it churns up the sea bed making puffs of sand which causes increased curiosity from flat fish whci will hopefully result in more fish in the boat.

Currently only available in 3oz, soon to be available in 4,5,6,8,10,12 and 16oz, watch this space.
