Anco darters

Anco darters look like Super Strike Zig Zags but they don’t work the same.  Anyone try to make them work better? I was thinking about changing the hooks or loading it with bird shot.  Anyone ever try this ?

They don't swim the same but they work very well, I have several Anco Darters. I believe they are 3oz. so they do weigh more than SS. My top producer has always been the chartruese Anco Darter.

Well, I guess loading is out 

Old timers used to load solid plugs all the time. Most popular method I saw was an empty 22 cal bullet shell "loaded" and imbedded horizontally like a modern "weight transfer system"

Wow. That’s ingenious in the first that I’ve ever heard of that.

I became aware of the method in the mid-60's but likely was done long before then. Some did a similar method with "rattles" instead of load.
