Default Where to buy tackle in semi bulk?

I needed to pick up a few things so I figured if pick them up at the bait shop on the way out yesturday. All i needed was a couple packets of swivels a couple packets of hooks and 10 sinkers and the bill came to like 20$...

Where can i get some of this in bulk? Im looking for packages of maybe 25-50 hooks, 50 - 100 pack of swivels, and so on. Anyone have a source or a store they go to?

-Lou

Wal-Mart sells 25 packs of hooks, if you use Circle hooks for $1.88 you can get a pack of 5 all snelled with leader, I won't be tying anymore :yeah: I think the swivels were like $.92 per pack of 12 too

Loun, Cabela's sells these pack of 80 hooks for $3.99, but they're for walleye. They also have a 72 piece for trout, none for stripers.





I always get the Eagle Claw hooks from Wal-Mart and the catfish in the Delaware bends them.
I thought Eagle Claw's were good or are they??

You can buy a sinker maker. They have them on EBAY:

SINKER MAKER.

Not sure how good these are, but just thought I would share this information.

If you want a lot of sinkers try this:

EBAY ITEM.

Alittle much for me....

Thanks Plum Island. The ebay item on sinkers is quite too much. They also have a bid for 1000lbs of lead which costs $700! What type of equipment do I need for pouring my own sinkers, besides the led and sinker maker?

Leet there are health risks associated from breathing the lead dust for you and your family. :cry: I wouldnt really recommend the hobby. There are some non toxic alternatives. One is a putty that hardens when it hits water. Idea for an invention?

To make the sinkers, you can go the redneck way, buy a cheap walmart pot, couple cans of mepp gas, and heat it up that way, or get some other good source of heat.

No matter what, you need a lead pourer, they are like egg shells attached to sticks with a hole in the dome for dipping and pouring into the mold.

I had two years of Metal Shop class and only the teacher and I could pour the pots of molten metal into the castings cause I had the only "A" in there . I had to dress up in this leather suit and gloves and wear these freaky looking helmets. It was scary as hell cause I had nothing to protect my feet if something were to happen.

I might just continue to empty my pockets rather than risking the health issues.

been pouring jigs for some time, it's no big deal, do it in a well ventilated area, use a fan to push the fumes out.. garage or outside is best..

go to http://www.staminainc.com check out the molds, melters, hooks, etc.. I use the one thats a pourer and melter combined.. looks like an electric laddle.. works good. they have about all the sinker molds you'll ever see.. most of the mold are from "DO IT" but you can buy the doit molds cheaper at stamina then at doit.. go figure..

carry on :wtg:

Cabelas had a great Fly tying Hook set, a bunch of different types/sizes of hooks, for 29.99.. BUT NOOOO they had to get rid of it.
