That's beautiful Russ, I take it your car has a pretty good towing capacity!

I'd also take it that your planning to give the bottom fishing category a good bash.

Does it end up being cheaper to make your own then buying them once you have bought a mould and lead? Where do you get lead from?

Fishing isn't a matter of life or death, it's much more serious than that!!!

it does get cheaper

Fri, 2009-02-27 17:50

it works out quite well for me as i get the lead real cheep with the deal i make them some sinkers as well

i get most of y lead from tyre shops , but some wont sell it to anyone and some will sell it cheap

just takes a bit of time setting it all up but once you get started you can pump out 40 to 50 in an afternoon n then there is just the tidy up of the sinkers

i melt down the tyre weights then pour off the good lead into another bowl and get rid of the s@#t stuff , normally i get about 70% of the lead thats good but you can save the money on buying sinkers , if you go to the right places you can get the moulds at a reasonable price

you can also get lead from scrap metal dealers but i have done that so cant say the price
