I'm needing to get some more sinkers for deep sea fishing but I'm having issues finding the sizes that I need. As a result I'm looking at getting the molds and making my own but I'm not sure what would be best for the material.
I know that I can buy the molds for lead but trying to work out where I could get a steady supply of lead from is a little harder to find. My alternative is to try and find something other than lead which would be suitable. I have modeling clay at home but I don't know whether that would be suitable and I've seen about sandsinkers (cotton bags containing enough sand for the weight I need) but I'm still a little unsure.
Has anybody ever made their own sinkers please?
