|Fishing Weights (6)|
Lead used to be the standard for fishing weights (which are used to make the line and/or bait sink) but environmental regulations and concern about lead poisoning encouraged people to switch to less toxic substances. Lead fishing weights are still widely available, but so are weights made of several other metals, as demonstrated by this group of samples.
