The heaviest lead sinker will automatically score points as well ie 1 or 5
Home made sinkers are fine BUT it has to be clear that it is actually a sinker.
Photo required on scales in GRAMS please and weighed as accurately as possible.
Finally all enteries must be posted on THIS THREAD with text ie.( 1x ring 2 X sinkers 1 X 115 g sinker etc) and photos to make my job easier.
As with this and future comps once I like () your post this shows I have seen the entry and recorded it.
Once again the following image is completely optional
Final note you only need to show the relevant finds on this thread, although the complete hunt is fine if you wish. However for special finds they may be better in the show and tell category against your name for future reference?
Enjoy and if you have questions don’t hesitate
