Default Re: When tying a weighted fly ?

I tie most all of my weighted flies with as large a brass bead as I can get on them. However, most of them are either smallish nymphs I want to sink like a rock, or streamers I want to have lots of jigging action.

When/if I ever have a need to fish big stonefly nymphs, or something else I want to drift more calmly downstream, I'll tie them up with lead wraps.

Beads/coneheads are also alot quicker, in my book. I've tied so many clousers, I can prolly even tie on beadchain/dumbell eyes faster than I can wrap a shank with wire and secure it.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
