Anyone know what or how to obtain the stones like the pallatrax one's I am trying to make my own but can't get the right kind of stone, silly question I know but just thought I'd try.

Hi Ricky,
I actually find that natural stonze are too light for any meaningful purpose.
If its the camo angle you are after have a look at the `Pebbles' from Anchor Tackle.

They are actually proper leads but with totally irregular shapes and fantastic camouflage.
They can be obtained from :-
www.hookedangling.comjust click on the Order Anchor Tackle retail link.

Dragon carp in Hucknall Nottm have a fair stock of "stonze" although as the "Coach" said they are a little light and not,by their very nature, very aerodynamic. I do however have a fair few which I use along with some home made jobs that require nothing more than araldite and aquarium grit which is glued to standard ledger weights. Dragon do a mail order service by the way.

There are also various powders available to alter the colour of leads into a variety of different colours including gravel they may be of interest to you.

all their stonez are factory made for them...they are not natural...they just look like they are.

like coach says, regular stones don't tend to carry the weight for the size you'd want.

Unless you are in Liverpool then half a house brick seems to hold bottom
