Tactical Fly Fisher Slotted Tungsten Beads 50 Pack Metallic Colors (olive, pink, light pink, orange, purple, coffee, shiny brown, rainbow)

$7.75 - $9.75

50 beads per bag. 

These are top quality tungsten beads  at a great price with small slots to increase weight. This light pink shade is the color that competitors seem to be so crazy about these days.

We label the beads the size that they actually are while most dealers just round them up to the half mm size. What that means is our 2.3mm bead is another seller's 2.5mm and our 2.8mm is another seller's 3mm bead etc. Slotted beads are great for jig hooks but I also use them for straight shanked hooks as well. By inserting lead wire into the slot you can offset the bead to increase hook gap and the hold of the hook while also inverting the fly in the water. The colored beads allow you to add an extra flare or a hotspot to your flies. The 3.8mm beads fit into the FIPS Mouche measuring device so you'll know you're legal if you fish in FIPS governed competitions.

Metallic Slotted Tungsten Beads

Excellent quality. Coffee is a really nice color. I really like these beads to create variation to fly patterns.

Awesome beads

I tried these beads along with some other ones that I’m tying for steelhead and some orders. One thing I noticed is when curing uv resin the beads lit up like a Christmas tree. I love beads that have a uv quality to them. Great beads and a great price
