Gemini DD Fixed Grip Leads
Made in a relatively thick 1.4mm strong marine grade stainless steel wire, that does not easily give or bend. This should only be used in the strongest of conditions – if you can’t hold with this one it’s probably time to pack up and go home! On retrieval, it has to be pulled from it’s anchorage up to the boat or pier to avoid encountering snags.
The Fixed grip wires give the maximum amount of grip because of the distance of the grip wire from the mass of the sinker, and are consequently least suitable for casting. They are therefore mainly used from piers and boats where the tidal flow is strong, but because of the height of the fisherman from the sea bed, they can be virtually lifted out of position and are not required to be dragged across a large expanse of obstacle strewn shallow water upon retrieval. However, given the right conditions they are suitable for casting.
