Fly tying beads are part of the basic set up for any fly tyer. They are made from brass or tungsten and are used as the heads of nymphe, streamer, and subaquatic flies.
A lot of new patterns are now made with different colours and density. The tungsten is around 2 times more heavy than the brass.
Brass and tungsten beads are the basic materials for every fly tying workshop. Brass beads are used as the heads of larvae, nymphs and pupae. All traditional and fancy models of wet flies and streamers may be provided with brass beads to create new and often very successful flies.
We have selected only those beads which proved to be the most practical and successful in many tests. Their common feature is the exceptionally durable and corrosion-proof design as well as resistance to mechanical factors.
We hope you’ll be satisfied with the best prices on the market.
This new tungsten bead with its offset hole allows the tying of multiple kinds of underwater fly patterns with all types of hooks (regular or jigs).
This shape allows you to build the body of the fly on top of the shank.
The tungsten is heavier than brass.
It's very important to have different weights for the same fly in your fly box.
For light nymphs or shallow water use the brass.
For deep pools or fast currents use the tungsten.
