Was thinking of painting my leads cause I cast on a beach and trying to find a grey lead in grey sand is a nightmare as I'm sure you know. Yes i think have all been there,,, Was thinking of using some kind of luminous or florescent paint. Is this wise? Is there any special paint anyone can recommend. No point in painting them as they will dig in when they land so they still wont be visible. Any other tricks for retrieving leads after crack off's? The only thing you can do is use hi-vis leader, pick one that contrasts with the colour of the beach, field,,etc. Although even saying that sometime it still is a nightmare to find the odd one
I don't want to tie anything to the lead or use anything that will restrict the distance of the cast.
For practice alot of guys use hockey balls (drilled out and mounted on 12inches of 100 or 200lbs mono with a large strong swivel at the top) or a large sliding float on a lenght of the same mono with a lead link at the bottom.
