    I strongly encourage everyone to go lead-free. We’ve made that commitment in Minnesota’s aquatic education program. Our biggest concern are loons and fish-eating raptors, but many other species can be affected by lead in the environment. Check out these pages for more information:

    The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has a long list of vendors that provide lead-free tackle:

    In particular, Water Gremlin,, ("Gremlin Green" line features several styles of weights made from bismuth, and split-shot made from tin) and Northland Fishing Tackle,, (The "Nature Jig" is 100% lead free, cast from a nontoxic bismuth/tin alloy) have been our source for most of our split shot and jigs. Here is a contact for Northland:
