Nymph Head Heavy Metal Tungsten Beads Information

Brand : Fish-skull

Code : 6444343

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.
  5. Best packaging with step-by-step tying instructions for original fly patterns.

1. More Realistic Fly Profile

Nymph-Head™ beads have realistic 3D “nymph eyes” that imitate the eyes of natural insects. This an improvement upon the common round fly tying bead and enables the fly tier to create more effective and realistic imitations of aquatic trout food!

As an option, eye color can be easily added in seconds by using a fine-tip paint marker, vinyl jig paint 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. See How to add eye color.

2. Fastest sinking tungsten beads on the planet.

15-20% extra tungsten material is used in manufacturing resulting in a bead that is significantly heavier than normal round tungsten beads. When fishing you will see a noticeable increase in sink rate as your fly gets down to the “feeding zone” quicker!

3. The widest range of color options in a superior anodized finish.

Nymph-Head™ Heavy Metal beads are available in 10 colors giving the fly tier fisherman the widest choice of color options on the market today. There are 15 beads per pack.

Natural Fly colors includes beads in Caddis Green, Mayfly Brown, Baetis Green-Olive and Stonefly Black colors.

  • Nymph Head Heavy Metal Tungsten Beads Review by Alan,  On 13/01/2017 04:44:52

    Great product and certainly get the fly down to where the fish are quickly.
  • Nymph Head Heavy Metal Tungsten Beads Review by David T,  On 07/03/2015 17:11:12

    The Tungsten beads in Green Copper and Gold I have found to be ideal in tying my own Damsel Pattern which I have trialed over 2years at Dever Spring Fishery. The added weight of the tungsten beads tied in as to represent eyes, brings added weight to the fly pattern, which in turn gets the nymph down quickly to where the Trout are feeding on the naturals.
