The Easy Way Down
The Special Bouncer lets you adjust weight to find fish without cutting and retying your line. Slide your mono through its wire loop and guide, then choose a weight and slip it onto the pin. The weight bounces along the bottom while your line floats above debris, avoiding snags. If you do get hung up, just yank-all you'll lose will be the weight. $5; toshtackle.com
