Nymph-Head™ Beads dive deeper!
The “Nymph-Eyes” on the bead mean that we have to use 12% more Tungsten than normal round beads
making them size-for-size the heaviest bead on the market!
Tungsten has twice the sink rate of basic brass or zinc-alloy beads, getting your nymph down very quickly into
the “feeding zone” and increasing your chances of a hookup by as much as 50% every cast!
Environmentally friendlier than Lead, Tungsten supports the trend of angling communities to move away from
the use of Lead-based alloys. In addition, using tungsten beads reduces your fly tying time since the need to
add additional weight to your flies is often eliminated.
As an option, eye color can be quickly and easily added to the Nymph-Head™ in seconds by using a fine-tip paint marker or a permanent, waterproof marker to suit the desired nymph pattern. This offers the fly tier an endless range of color combinations and fly variations. DecoColor™ Extra-Fine Tip Paint Markers are permanent, water-resistant paint markers with an extra-fine tip that allows easy application of color to the smallest of flies! Their oil-based formula provides a realistic, glossy finish to the eyes on the Nymph-Head™ beads or can be used for many other fly tying applications such as adding color and detail to poppers, streamers and other fly patterns.see our range DecoColor Extra Fine Tip Paint Marker -
