Curious how you knew he was using lead since there is no way to tell by looking at it?...

Since there are plenty of other heavy metals that are non toxic and are now being widely used by fishermen that are less than 1 ounce, I simply cannot imagine any sponsor requiring the use of something illegal...this “story” just doesn’t make sense...

It's Always Sunny On Welch Island!!
