Default Anyone else tried Nymph-Head beads?

Hi there. New to the board. Was just wondering if anyone else has tied any flies using these new tungsten beads? I bought some to try on some Copper Johns and am thrilled with the result! A whole new look. the manufacturers website is www.flymenfishingcompany.com

Anyone else have a similar experience?

Hi RedFly,

I have not used those beads but have used the Orvis Tungsten beads on small nymphs. I like the shape of these better for very small flies.

Had no idea those were out there, pretty dang cool. Thanks for letting us know.

I got quite a few regular beads to use up first though.

Hi to all,

I didn't pay much attention to these beads but I went back and looked again after Cliff's post. They are pretty slick. Here are a couple of pictures from their site. Thanks RedFly for bringing these new beads to our attention.

Frank
