Making surf casting sinkers with the foldable wires
 How do you do those?
 Special grade wires?

Have been asked if I can make some.

I picked up these sinkers at the local beach at low tide. The foldable wire ones seem to be trapped on the oyster beds.

I found this lot over the last 2 days.

Na, just walking around in the mud.

I found some more sinkers yesterday. It’s a messy job but well worth the exercise and fresh air.
