Micro Fishing Weights

Dinsmore #10 Shot

Micro fishing weights are small to very small split shot or other weights that will get your bait or fly down to where the fish are but aren't too heavy to use with very sensitive floats.

Dinsmore N0. 10 shot dispenser

These are single size packs of #10 shot which is the smallest environmentally friendly non-lead shot I've found in the US. The #10 is  just enough weight to make the tanago floats set properly and is also the right size for the Unibobbers.

What I find truly bizarre, though, is that while tin shot is widely hailed as being safe for the environment, each package has a label which says, in capital letters, "WARNING This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects and other reproductive harm."

So, I guess it's safe for the ducks but for heaven's sake don't apply the shot by biting it. I suppose you should wash your hands after you use it (assuming the water you're fishing in doesn't also cause cancer and birth defects in California.)

Realistically, the same warning should probably be given to people using lead split shot, and lead shot has been used for generations. I do sometimes wonder how we as a species could possibly have survived for four million years without having all those government warnings.

Like anything else, use reasonable caution and you should be fine.

Dinsmore #10 shot - $9.00

The #10 shot are seriously small and I would recommend the Dr. Slick Spring Creek clamps for applying them. The jaws on the Spring Creek clamps taper to quite a point, which is what you'll want to grab and hold the very small shot.

Dinsmore Four-Pack D4B

Dinsmore D4B Split Shot dispenser

The Dinsmore four-pack D4B has split shot in sizes 10, 8, 6, and 4. If you need a bit more weight than the size 10 shot, having the 4-pack allows you to choose the weight you need.

Shipping

Domestic shipping is $4, via USPS First Class Mail (unless ordered with an item that must go via Priority Mail, and which has a higher shipping charge). The charge is added to your order automatically.

Please note: All packages are shipped via USPS. If you have a PO Box, please list ONLY the PO Box in your address, not the PO Box and your street address.

If you live in an apartment, please put the apartment number on the same line in the order form as the your street address, for example

John Doe
123 Main St Apt 4
Yourtown, XX 12345

Just leave the second line blank! Please! It takes you more time to put something in it and it takes me more time to take it back out. If you need it for a business name, use it. Otherwise, please leave it blank. No dashes, no nothing.

The charge for international shipping depends on the destination country, the weight of the package, the overall length of the package and the value of the package.

International purchases may be subject to import duties and taxes. I cannot keep track of all import regulations in all countries written in all languages. Understanding and paying import duties and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


Warning:

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
