Tactical Fly Fisher Metallic Inverting Tungsten Beads 50 Pack (Light Pink, Orange, Coffee)

$8.25 - $12.00
( 2 Reviews )

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

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

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 3 or more wraps of lead wire behind the bead.
  3. Put a drop of superglue in front of the bead.
  4. 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.

Very unique and Versatile

I love these beads. You can mount them to much smaller hooks than you would conventional beads. I also find they add a more "buggy/wormy" look to certain patterns and most of all it allows any non-jig style hook to gain the same advantage. I've had a great deal of success using these beads.

inverted beads

Once I learned to effeciently place them on the hook and then secure them with the super glue technique they have become my favorite nymph bead.
