Coarse fishing weights are available in various shapes and sizes and some feature camouflaged coatings to help avoid spooking wary fish. Pear leads, with a swivel or loop at one end, are often used with bolt rigs or running rig set ups. Larger weights can increase the effect of bolt rig set ups whilst smaller leads will make less splash when cast out. Flat pear shape leads are ideal when fishing on sloping bottoms as they won’t roll whilst more aerodynamic pear shapes are better for casting long distances.
Split shots are squeezed onto the line and are often used to weight floats as they are available down to very small sizes. Plummets are also used when float fishing, they are added to the hook and are used to plumb the swim and find the depth before the angler starts fishing.
