Fishing Weights

Post by Dando on Fri Mar 14, 2008 5:38 am

No fishing weights made of lead may be used except those of 0.06 grams or less and those of more than 28.35 grams.

In angling terms this means that lead shot from size 14 to size 8 and lead weights of over 1 ounce can be used in fishing.

While lead dust shot (size 8 and smaller) are legal, they are toxic to birds if ingested. Use spillproof containers for lead dust shot and always dispose of used lead safely at home.

We can't push this advice enough to new and experienced angler alike! How many times do you turn up somewhere just to have to start cleaning the place up before you start fishing? How many times do you find discarded line with shot still attached? It really is unacceptable and anyone I see doing it gets told in no uncertain terms!
