Lead getting Banned????


"Friday, The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a statement, rejecting the petition submitted by Michael Fry of the American Bird Conservancy to ban lead in outdoor sports, namely ammunition and fishing tackle. The rejection addresses jurisdictional issues over the agency's legal authority to issue such a ban under the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976.

This petition was filed in early August, but is just one of many the EPA has received related to lead in fishing and hunting equipment.

This was a win for all hunters, however, fishermen are not in the clear yet with the second part of the petition still under review by the EPA. According to the EPA, there are no jurisdictional issues with the agency’s authority over fishing sinkers, however, so they are still reviewing the petition in terms of that side of the argument.

We don’t quite understand how banning lead in hunting ammunition is outrageous to the EPA but banning it in fishing sinkers is not. Our guess is that it has to do with the lead being in the water.

To read the full release from the EPA, visit this link on the epa.gov website. To read the EPA's rejection of the ammunition portion of the petition, visit this link.

To read the petition, visit this link on regulations.gov. To speak out on the fishing sinker/tackle side of the issue, please visit regulations.gov Docket ID: EPA-HQ-OPPT-2010-0681.

The EPA will consider comments made by September 15 on this petition and issue."


Here we go again the liberals trying to ban lead. Ok well I for one haven't used Tungsten weights yet. I just am too cheap to go and buy 3 wieghts for 5 or more dollars. What about all spinnerbaits, jigs, anything that has lead will need to be made out of something...cost for baits will go much higher. This is rediculous. emoticon

I'll go ya one better than sinkers on the fishin' end......

How 'bout the solder on a treble hook? emoticon emoticon

I don't see how they limit theirselves on the hunting side either. You already have to use steel shot for waterfowl. emoticon

Re: Lead getting Banned????


In NY any lead under a 1/2 ounce is already banned. You cannot buy 3/8oz cone sinkers or anything less than 1/2 containing lead. The law was passed because and you aint gonna believe this, the cormorants (big black pain in the ass bird) dives down and injests these small lead sinkers and dies. But and heres the kicker, there is a thing going around to kill
off some of these birds because they are over populating wildlife areas and eating all the bait fish. Let em eat lead. Gotta love these law makers. We go to Connecticut 10 miles away and ya can get all the lead sinkers in any shape ya want. I guess cormorants don't fly to Connecticut.
