Are fishing weights made of lead because it is cheap?

    Fishing weights are made from lead because it is one of the heaviest metals. However, lead poisoning does have an effect on the environment especially if these weights are broken from the line. Birds are especially effected by possible lead poisoning. This is why lead shot in hunting has been banned since 1991.
