    Question Flat lead strip

    Is there a domestic source for the pre-cut thin lead strip that we see on many videos?

    Jamie McPhail in Scotland uses it quite a lot. Thanks.

    Check the neck of red wine bottles some of them have lead foil, golf shops carry lead tape with adhesive on one side, sometimes you can find it at Walmart.

    Years ago my dentist gave me about 2 pounds of extremely thin lead sheets that he saved from his x-ray film. Each little sheet is about 1-1/4 x 1-1/2 inch. Maybe if you are on good terms with your dentist you should ask about this product. I have used so little of this lead that I'm guessing I haven't put a dent in the initial amount.

    So maybe you could share and send enough to Ray for a couple dozen nymphs.

    I've seen lead tape in the golf and tennis sections in a lot of the big box sporting goods stores; plenty of on-line sources, too.

    I got a couple feet of it for free at a DICK"S, by trying to buy some in the pro shop.
