The Stonze System

Fishing with the 'Stonze™' System makes perfect sense, a unique, natural, camouflaged, environmentally friendly alternative to fishing with lead.The following are just some of the key points why you will fish the 'Stonze™ System':

Unique product and environmentally friendly 'Stonze™' are naturally unique in colour, shape and size
'Stonze™' settle on the bottom as opposed to crashing like a lead, therefore excellent for fishing silty bottoms
'Stonze™' can be left in water to encourage algae growth - resulting in further natural camouflage Can't get a more natural product to do the job of a weight Increased catch rate Quality flex ring swivel attached - compatible with all types of rig
Camouflage - most lakes formed by gravel extraction, gravel river bottoms Fish learn by association - anything unnatural (lead)
can indicate a possible danger Leads and their uniform shape are consistently used on pressured waters, which makes them difficult waters
'Stonze™' being porous, will take on a flavour Excellent for using with a method mix Leads are purely a weight, but are totally unnatural. Now you can make your weight natural And it all makes sense!!! RRP - £1.25 If you prefer using an inline weight system for your fishing then the Inline Stonze™ System will give you all the advantages associated with using a Stonze™ instead of lead. Supplied with 8 inches of soft rig tubing attached and fitted with a tulip bead to take a size 8 swivel or stumpy rig. Available in medium and large.RRP - £1.60

The 'Stonze System' Includes eight quality 'Stumpy Rigs', which are hand-tied in England. Each rig comes complete with a Stonze™ attachment, so simply add a Stonze™ and you have a competent and confident terminal set up. You have the choice of either 12lb or 15lb fluorocarbon, 12lb or 15lb braid, size 6 or 8, barbed or barbless.The rigs are unique in their length (approx. 3") as the concerns for a lead no longer exist for presentation, and we believe that shorter hooklinks are by far the most effective.RRP - £1.99
