These Hanak competition grade fly tying slotted tungsten beads are the most pure tungsten beads available. No filler here! Nearly twice as heavy as lead beads, tungsten tying beads will get your flies to the bottom of the river quickly, and allow your flies to be be slimmer and even smaller, making them more realistic.
Why diamond or faceted beads?
The micro facets on these Hanak beads catch and reflect more light to add just a little extra sparkle to your flies, resulting in a better chance of fish seeing your fly in the water. They also create a ton of surface area for micro air-bubbles to accumulate on just like real bugs, which gives your fly another level of realism in the water.
