Turn any hook into a jig hook with these inverting tungsten beads! Because the weight is offset, hooks invert during the drift. I've had very good success using these beads on straight shank nymph hooks. They reliably turn the fly upside down which reduces snags and leads to more fish being hooked securely in the upper jaw. They also are heavier than equivalent sizes of slotted or countersunk tungsten beads because less of the bead is removed to accommodate the hook.

50 beads per pack

The process for attaching them is:

  1. Slide the bead onto the hook with the concave (recessed) side facing to the rear of the hook. Leave a gap between the hook eye and the bead.
  2. Put a drop of superglue in front of the bead.
  3. Invert the hook and slide the lead wire and bead forward. Jam the lead wire into the recess and the superglue will hold the wire and bead in place.

*See the hook and bead chart in the product photos for information on matching hook size and bead mass.

Inverted beads

First time using inverted beads. They seem like a perfect solution for scud hooks- I will definitely buy more.

nverting Tungsten Beads Fluorescent Colors 50 pack Chartrause

I fished with some Perdigons with the inverting beads with great success but initially had difficulty getting the smaller beads on my hooks. I learned how simple it was and now tie with them from 18 to 12's. Works great and like a jig hook, rides with the hook up on straight shank nymph hooks. Another great tool in the tool box.
