    I came up with this approach for making your own sinker slides. Great site and hope this benefits you.

    GREAT TIP!!!... I'd imagine that would be much cheaper for the Bulk than buying slides

    The hollow shank, tubing, of the sinker slide seems to keep the line and swivel from wrapping around intself and causing a knot. The tube length, with perpendicular swivel, keeps the weight outboard from the main line for casting. This is my experience from trying both methods. I have always been capable of the riverside development of new and uniqe knots, that no one else has ever made. The slides help me fish more.

    Thats a great idea.

    I didn't know that many people used them.. I learned about them pier fishing at the coast and started using them when I anchor for cats. I dont get snagged up as much for some reason.

    I bought 100 of them online for $7.95 plus $3.95 shipping.

    For $12 I let someone else make them.

    I've been thinking about getting slides myself, but didn't want to pay what Cabelas and BPS wants for their versions. Would like to know where I can get them in quantity.

    since I add beads and stir sticks to keep hook away from sinker. I'll make mine longer and place the swivel at one end.
    Great idea, thanks

    Dave,
    Excellent job with the photos! Very well done.
    Best thing about that system to me is it needs only 1-knot at the hook for least chance of break off.

    I use smallest swivels possible (very cheap) to match line size and stop swivel with several methods where no knot is required to keep the "one knot" at hook idea possible.

    The main idea being methods of stopping the sinker without having to tie a knot and be adjustable and most tangle free.
