If you have connections to a welding shop, stainless welding wire is excellent. It's stiffer per diameter than mild steel, and of course hardly rusts. But (there's always a but) the lead weight doesn't stick to the SS very well, so you need to put a slight kink in the wire before casting the lead onto the wire.

That's the stuff I use for my lure making. Great stuff. From weed guards on hooks to bait keepers on jigs, spinners and spinnerbaits as well. The #15 is what you want.
