    Get the Right Depth

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I like to use the yellow tins for finer adjustments (5X to 7X) for nymphing, and the orange tins for bigger adjustments (1X to 4X).

    They go on easy and come off easy. Great split shot.

    Good if You Need Heavier Weight

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this pack by mistake as I was looking for the lower weight split shot pack found here https://www.backcountry.com/angler-s-accessories-6-way-mini-split-shot-assorted-lead.
    I find that I often need smaller weights and really have only utilized the smallest weight from this pack when fishing. Will be purchasing the 6 way mini shot next time for more lower weight options!

    Just OK

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Gets your flies down where you need them. Container is labeled so you can easily distinguish between sizes of shot. Be careful opening the container for the first time - if you don't pop the plastic ring out properly and the plastic lid breaks or crack, it could twist open in your pack. Whomp, whomp - personal experience.

    To cover yourself for any scenario, grab the yellow tin of small yellow shot too!

    Just don't eat 'em.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These weights attach easily to your line so you can get your flies down to where the fish are eating. My only suggestion would be to attach them with a pair of clamps; I can't really recommend nibbling on lead weights all day.

    Gets the job done

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Husband says, "the shot is fine, it’s just your usual lead that does its job of weighing down the line quite well. I gave this item 3 stars because the packaging is a bit of a PITA. Breaking off the ring so you can rotate the lid isn’t easy and once it’s off, I’ve had the lid rotate open in my bag, spilling shot. Would like Backcountry to carry more options."

    Must Have

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For anyone that enjoys nymphing, split shot is a must have. I like this brand because they make it easy to put on/take off, have a quality container, and offer a good spread of weight in the same tin. For the price, you can't go wrong.

    Buy the orange tin

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Lead isn't the greatest, but these are convenient and cheap, so as long as you clean up after yourself I don't see much harm in using these.

    Personally I use lead on faster, larger rivers so the orange tin with the larger weights makes more sense for me. If you are fishing slow moving tailwaters it may make sense to have the yellow tin with the smaller weights.

    dont forget these

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    every fishing pack or vest needs some of these. with all the sizes you will ever need for nymphing, you should be all set.

    always good to have

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My preference is to throw dries, hands down. With that said, and as much fun as casting is, catching fish is pretty damn fun too. When fish aren't up, I'll fish below the surface in efforts to hook up. The right depth is crucial, but having a natural drift is even more important. Play around with weight to achieve the depth of where fish are holding, and hang on for the ride.
