Re: where can i buy pencil lead and/or slinkies? by David F. Seifritz on Thu, Nov 11
If I'm correct they have banned the sale &/or the use of lead? Check the regs book? I really dont know? However when I first started fishing for steelhead with my spinning rod long long ago before I moved away. I bought a slinkie kit from FREDONS(that brings back memories) and uesd to make my own. Any parachute cord will work, Lowes or Home Depot would have camo cord and just stuff some BB's in to it. Shot you would use from shotgun shells they come in all sorts of sizes. I would make them up in 1 to 2 foot sections and just burn the ends with a lighter, then when I needed a slinkie with 3bb's or 7bb's depending on the flow I just cut a section off to length and melted the ends.Hope this helps.
