I know what you mean, Dana. I've had unholy messes all the time (btw, I assume you mean in high temperatures) until I discovered this: 50/50 mix of JP's Grey Mud and Hardline Soft Tacky weight. This combination is both pliable and doesn't turn into taffy.

I've found that softer lead shot, such as Lemer and Blackbird, tends not to slip as much. But, personally, I forego shot and use tungsten putty. If rolled on your leader very thin it stays in place and, perhaps more importantly, it is easy to adjust the weight by adding or removing a bit of the putty.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, CJ. As soon as I'm done with this post, I'll write a letter as a "tourist" who comes back to the Catskills in part because of the wild trout in the tributaries.
I make a tiny (1/8") loop at the end of my fly line using ten pound Berkely fused crystal superline and a uni knot. I make the loop and then secure it with the superfine. A drop of superglue secures it. Then I just tie on the butt of my leader to the tiny loop. Easy to attach, easy to detach. Alex
