Ok guys, i was sorting through some old tackle at home when i found this sinker. What is this for and what rigs can i tie with this?

I also found this at the local jetty. Is this a rig clip?

How will this work and will it work with a circle hook?

It's just a method used in surf casting to keep the bait streamlined during the cast. When it hits the water, the bait is released from the sinker.  It stops the bait from pinwheeling and allows a longer cast

the impact shield also helps a delicate bait stay in tact when hitting the water or a bait shifting up the trace when it hits the water if it hasn't been secured properly to the hook.

So how do i use and tie the inline sinker to cast further? I went to the tackle shop and saw their label and apparently they call it a double cone sinker.

Agreed.    If you cast a sinker and large bait separate they "helicopter" in the air reducing distance significantly and also risking the bait coming adrift from the hook.   I'll post picture of a similar system.

This is a beach fishing grapnel sinker.
What it does is keep the bait and the sinker together for better casting.

Secondly because the casting straign is on the hook line, you can use a much lighter line to the sinker which takes no stress.   The advantage of that is that in foul areas the sinker line will break off easier if the sinker gets stuck costing only the sinker, you will probably retain the hook and other terminal tackle.

That sinker costs about $2 so yes Grin

PS I cast my own sinkers, therefore the poor looking sinker Smiley
