The Next Generation of fly tying beads.

The innovative Nymph-Head™ design significantly improved the common, round fly tying bead when it was launched in 2007. The simple addition of realistic 3D “nymph eyes” created a more realistic fly profile. It also added 15-20% more tungsten weight to the bead which greatly improved the sink rate of the fly. These features were combined with a wide range of vibrant new colors in a scratch-resistant anodized coating to produce an advanced fly tying product that allows fly tiers to make any ordinary fly pattern extraordinary.  

Five reasons why Nymph-Head™ Heavy Metal tungsten beads are better:

  1. A more realistic fly profile.
  2. The fastest sinking tungsten beads on the planet.
  3. The widest range of color options in a superior anodized finish.
  4. In your fly box you can easily tell which beadhead flies are tungsten and which are brass.
