    Hey y'all I'm going to be doing just that..... maybe tomorrow... with my medication for my "gout" I've been off my feet.. but I gave it a start before going to Squaw lake.... I have maybe 30 lbs. of lead to use up...

    I am modifying a pyramid mold... 4 ounces to have a wire on both end.... I think it might be better for hauling in and not hanging up so much...
