LEADER SINKANT, £4

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - FIRST CAST -

A pot of Ledasink costs roughly £2, but if you buy raw Fuller’s Earth, a bot­tle of glyc­erin and some wash­ing-up liq­uid you will have enough in­gre­di­ents to make a life­time’s worth of leader sinkant. Fuller’s Earth (100g) can be found on­line for £2, while glyc­erin is avail­able from a chemist for around the same money. Ex­per­i­ment with mea­sures, but for starters, try two tea­spoons each of wash­ing-up liq­uid and glyc­er­ine to one tea­spoon of Fuller’s Earth. Put it in an old, plas­tic film can­is­ter or sim­i­lar. Add glyc­er­ine when it dries out.

Home-made sinkant. Ex­per­i­ment to achieve the right con­sis­tency.
