    Thanks everyone for your help.
    I am going to see Billy Clarke, he's only about 8 or so miles from my home.
    Thanks Chris.

    Thanks. I'll take a look to see if they have something smaller.

    Fox do split sinkers in sizes swan to No.4 but I'm not sure if they're what you meant?

    I thought Drennan did cored inline olivettes,
    They are ideal for using as a light bomb rig, less splash, and less resistance on a take.

    They do, I use them a lot, they even line the bore with silicone tubing to protect the line which is a nice touch.

    I use 8 and 10 olivettes for light bomb fishing, they give the impression to me that they are like a pellet splash on the water. Unlike a big splashing bomb.

    And you seem to get better bite detection and sometimes a better stamp of fish.

    Can't say the fish are bigger, it's just a better way of bomb fishing to my mind. One things for sure you get more bites before the fish back off.
    By the way the 8 and 10 above are grams.
