Sinkers & Moulds
Sinkers, almost always made of lead, are designed to get your lure or bait in front of the fish. Often, this involves getting your offering to the bottom of the lake or stream and keeping it there. Here at Anaconda, we offer a range of sinkers ranging from simple split shot to more elaborate sinkers that are ideal for your target species. As buying ready-made leads can work out expensive, we also stock a range of lead moulds which allow you to make your own lead weights as and when they are needed

Sinker moulds are incredibly important features of tackle boxes owned by serious anglers all around Australia. Sinkers are essential components of terminal tackle, and your fishing rig won't perform properly without the appropriate sinker, hook and bait. Getting set up to fish isn't complex, but there are countless ways to configure hooks, sinkers, swivels, lures and other fishing line components. Whether you are a newcomer to fishing tackle at Anaconda, or a veteran angler who knows their way around Australia, premium fishing rods, fishing reels, fishing line and other fishing gear from manufacturers such as Surecatch, Plano, Berkley, Alvey and Jarvis Walker will help you reel in the catch of the day.
Sinker moulds are instantly recognisable due to their weight. Sinkers are traditionally made out of lead, with a diverse selection available at Anaconda. The range of sinkers includes split shot sinker, pyramid sinker, bomb sinker and Snapper sinker. Sinker mould options include ball sinker mould, Snapper sinker mould and more for all types of fluorocarbon and monofilament fishing line. At Anaconda, we even have sinker solutions to keep crab pots and cast nets on the ocean floor where they belong. The Anaconda collection of fishing rods, fishing line, and other fishing gear is unbeatable, including the best sinker moulds and terminal tackle on the market.
WHAT SHOULD YOU CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING SINKERS?
Every Australian angler has an individual style, and every fishing location in Australia is different. You will need to personalise your fishing gear to suit the location and conditions, including using the appropriate fishing sinker moulds. In the right balance your fishing line, sinker, hook and bait should work as one unit, and fool an unsuspecting fish that there is a tasty morsel floundering in the water. For information regarding tackle boxes, fishing rods, crab pots, rod storage, spearfishing equipment and more, speak to an Anaconda service professional. We even stock outboard motors, fishing kayaks, winches, surf rods, aerators, life jackets and other useful fishing gear and accessories.
The fish or other seafood you are chasing will dictate the sinker moulds you use. The choices are all yours in Australia, from beach fishing with a surf rod, fly fishing for Trout, or fishing the coast and estuaries for octopus and crabs. With Anaconda brands include Gillies, Jarvis Walker, Shimano and Berkley on your side, you are assured of purchasing high quality fishing gear including impressive spinning reels, overhead reels, spearfishing gear and fishing rods. We even have rod building kits so you can attach your favourite spinning reel to your heavy duty graphite rod.
WHAT KIND OF SINKERS ARE AVAILABLE AT ANACONDA?
A number of sinker choices are available. Here are some of the most common:
Pyramid sinkers - this type of sinker gets to the bottom quickly and digs into sand or mud.
Ball sinkers - these sinkers are popular for running sinker rigs, where the main line is threaded through the sinker and left unattached, so it can move more freely.
Bean sinkers - Bean sinkers are often preferred over ball sinkers because of their good casting shape that offers better bottom-holding characteristics than the ball sinker, due to the bean's flat sides.
Egg sinkers - Egg sinkers and diamond sinkers move over rocks and rubble a little easier than other shapes.
Split shot sinkers - Split shot sinkers are very useful when fishing light in streams or estuaries and are quick to get on and off and work well when you need a little extra weight.
Of course, sinkers are only one small part of the huge range of fishing gear available at Anaconda, so remember to check out the rest of our fishing range for all your rods, reels, lines, lures and other fishing essentials as well as clothing, footwear and other accessories for anglers of all ages.
