It is now necessary to obtain a spring scales weighing from 0 to 300 ounces; one of these can be found lying around most homes. One end of the line, with sinkers, must be attached to the scales. Go to your local sports store and purchase 300 of light nylon fishing line, together with 300 1ounce lead sinkers.
