Default Re: When tying a weighted fly ?

depends on what i want out of the fly.

some i wrap with lead, some i use a cone or bead head, some i use both.

i have also been tying and fishing more deer hair streamers lately (marabou muddlers, kiwi muddlers, bow river buggers) and for those i just wrap. most of my buggers i tie with both a cone and a wrap.

if im tying to fish a local lake where the cuts hang way down deep in the summer, ill use a lead wrap and a tungsten bead head. those two things together and my fly probably sinks faster than a rock. i also use a 300 gr full sink line on that lake too, often fishing 40+ ft deep.

by the way, just curious, why do you use non-lead wire?
