    Default Lead weight swap

    Hey guys. I was going thru all my fishing stuff today and realized I have around 16 4 lb and 6 5lb weights that I don't need. I'd be interested in trading for some 1's 2's or even a few 3's. I don't care to sell it right now though. Just like to trade. What ya got?

    I got every size they make Rob In a cod sinker 1,2,3,4,5,pound and every size in a cannonball from 1 oz-3 pounds as well.
    I even have the 20 and 24 oz sizes in a cannonball.
    If we can figure a way to get them to me I'm sure we can work something out.
    Might even trade for a few jigs if your interested.

    Assuming they're square/cod style, take those 4 pounders and cut them in half, anchor new eyes in the bottom half and you're in business with 2 pounders. No big deal

    Chris, If I can get down that way, that would be great.

    I've thought about cutting them in half, but I don't have the molds or pot to melt them in and remold the extra lead. No idea why I made so many of these bigger ones. We don't fish Homer that much and we don't use them in PWS.

    If you end up short on weights bring those big ones by my shop in Soldotna sometime and I'll fix you up with whatever sizes you need.
    If you let me know in advance I can have them ready for a drop off and pickup so your not stuck with too many big weights you don't have use for.
    Just need to know what you have and what you need.
