This egg shaped shot is super-soft and easy to pinch on any leader or tippet material. Dinsmores made "Black Egg" split shot specifically for fly fishing; it tends to have less wind resistance when casting and is less likely to snag the bottom when fishing. These shots are made from a 100% stable tin alloy so they are completely non-toxic. All Dinsmores shots have a small divot at the split for easy line location and shot removal. Flat Black. Made in England.
