I like using bank sinkers becasue they are so easy to make. I also really like using sinker slides (aka: Fish Finders) onmy rigs. A big proble is that any kind of bank sinker (reg bank or flat banks) over 3 oz usually are too big for a sinker slide. I bought a 21 piece bag of wire ties @ Wallyworld for 90 cents. My problem is now solved. See Pic Below.
