Non lead wieghts


does anyone know if there are any stores in corvallis that sell non lead weights because both bi-mart and the sporting goods place dont have them and those are the only two stores that sell fishing supplies that i can think of right now

There are some other options in Albany but I don't know if they have non lead weights. Maybe check Tom's Garden Center's fishing department, they have a lot of things Bi-Mart doesn't have. Then the other new one, name escapes me. ( maybe Sportsmans?)

What type of lead free weight are you looking for or what type of fishing will you be doing with them? My local Bi-Mart has Dave's Tangle Free steel weights that I use for all species of fish. I also find steel bullet weights at Walmart Superstores in various sizes, you could call the store in Albany and see if they carry them before you go. Hope this helps. Cheers
 
thanks all of you im looking for just little pinch on/off weights just for me and my family to use (we lose a lot of weights, especially my sisters)

If you have wheels call Don, at Fisherman Shack in Airlie. He's about 15 minutes north of Corvallis, at the corner of Airlie Road & Hwy. 99W. He may have some.

P.S. I've sent peeps there for decades; and he's always been fair and honest.

Whoa I didn't even know lead-free split shots were possible...

Found multiple choices in a quick search online

I use Daves, I have lived in Corvallis the past 2.5 years and the BiMart sells them but gets cleaned out regularly......Order directly, or check frequently......

I happened to go to Albany today to resupply some fishing items at the two places I mentioned above. I can report that Tom's has some Stone egg-type sinkers that are about $5 for a little pack and Sportsman's has tungsten bullet weights in several sizes and that's it.
