  Now that's thinking outside the box. I like it !
I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.

Thanks Jerry.  Those weights look really good.  Great step by step walk through.  The pictures along with the text make the process very clear.

Yes, it will...up to 3/8 oz.  Here's a link:

Might do the trick for this or other applications as well.

for some reason that mold seems to be easily overlooked even if you're looking in that section...  I'm not sure why exactly, it makes a pretty good spinner body and I didn't think of it either 'til he mentioned it.  We were talking about sinkers, right?... why would we be looking in the lure molds section.

I have a much better understanding of that idea since you and I talked the other day Matt.  I kinda like that idea too.  ;)

 Well done Jerry. Those turned out nice. I made some years ago. They're very snag resistant. The only real downside is lack of feel compared to hard sinkers.---Tim.

I sometimes use an egg sinker but I drill through the side to make it a football weight instead.  I get more hang-ups but it pops right out when you get behind it and give it a pop.

I've used split shots lined up similar to the parachute cord w swivel.  I use braided line for it   If you get hung up shot pulls off always a + when you make you own split shot.

Take something like a spinnerbait wire, twist one end, add a bead then your egg sinker, add another bead and twist the open end. Make it about three inches long so the egg sinker can move back and forth. Tire your main line to one end and the leader to the other. This helps in chunck rock.
