Our first video for Catch More Fish TV had to start off with looking at giving a better explanation of why we fish with the Stonze, our natural stone fishing weights.
As anglers, here at Pallatrax we have always understood that the largest and therefore most obtrusive piece of our terminal tackle is a man-made fishing weight most commonly made from lead – a substance known to be a danger to the environment with the fishing industry now being directed to phase out of angling by EFTTA due to it’s toxicity (independent expert advice which surely is telling us all that we should be responsible anglers seek to use one of the non-toxic alternatives?)
By replacing the lead with a natural stone fishing weight we remove any belief that our quarry will spook off the weight – something we cannot say in the case of a lead – or other man-made alternative.
Fish live and die within the water bodies they inhabit and for it to be promoted that by painting a lead makes it ‘disappear’ from their heightened senses is just not the case – they’re still there, they’re the most obtrusive item, they’re totally unnatural and therefore the fish has a greater ability to sense – FACT.
Our intention has never been to be arrogant about a topic we have intently studied but to actually design a fishing weight with a host of benefits that a lead will never have. This journey has ultimately led us to a tactical approach that we totally believe can increase our catch rates significantly – and every factual element points to why it does.
There is no sales ploy here, we are like you — nothing but anglers, and if we can help our fellow angler catch more and enjoy the sport further it can only be a good thing – surely?
