take your round lead and flatten it with some flat nose pliers

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

Default Re: Lead tape

You can also buy solder or fuse wire and flatten it. Available at hardware/radio shack etc. Make sure you don't get acid core or flux core-you want solid. That's what everybody used back in the day.
If you're really up for the DIY experience, buy a lead sinker or duck decoy weight or pick up scrap lead at the recycler. Melt it in a ladle on your stove, pour it onto a dry disposable surface then cut it to size when it cools.
