  Source for Brightly-Colored Wire

I have just found the BEST source for brightly colored wire. And its a place where I suspect most crafters never enter. I found wire in the Fishing Supplies section of a major sporting goods store. Apparently some people who fish also make some of their own lures. And they use brightly-colored wire.

I wonder what the difference in price is compared to the craft stores...I'll have to do some research...what fun.
