The name "Bouncing Betty" originally belonged to a German WWII anti-personnel mine but has since been used for what some would call a "slinky". The spherical rubber weight is attached to your line by the inbuilt swivel and is designed to be used as a sinker that will bounce over rocks and the like to allow a smooth, snag free drift.
Although designed for game anglers and very little used in the sea they are a brilliant way to fish a moving bait in shallow water and weak currents, particularly for Estuary fish in clear water. They have the added benefit that they are less harmful to the environment than a lost lead would be.
