Lead tape
 
I have been looking for lead tape where might I find it? I have no fly shop near me so I have to order everything I can't find it on any web site

Closest thing I have is a tape of Led Zepplin's :D

I saw it someplace recently and will look some for you. If I find it I'll let you know.

Go to a sporting good store and buy lead tape for golf clubs or tennis racquets

Is it the same thickness as tyer's tape? I have heard this a long time ago, and forgot about it. Back when it was talked about, I did not use lead tape. I do use it occasionally, but certainly not very often.

Golf Pro shops should have this also.

I think the stuff from golf shops is too thick. What I've done is purchased the the normal lead spools and then used a small jewelers hammer to flatten the lead as needed.

The tape I bought was thin enough to use for Czech nymphs.
