Good stuff! Thanks for the post!

I don't mind the beads or adding lead, but I do hate split shot.

I saw the thread in the J Stockard catalog, but had no idea about what I would use it for. Now I have a better idea!

Some really Smik looking Flies & like Larry I also didn't know The Thread existed.
Thanks for The Tip.
Like many others I still use Split Shot even though I don't really like it.

Thanks a lot for your thoughts on these flies. When I first saw the tungsten thread I couldn't get it fast enough, I knew it was what I was looking for. I hope you all try it and see the benefits for yourself first hand.

That's what I thought as soon as I saw it, I'm always on the lookout for a good material for backs.

Hmmmmm . . . opens up a whole bunch of ideas for other applications. Lots of weight in a very thin profile. Gotta think about this.
Thanks!
You should see what it does for your pt's & he's

I don't mind beads either, in fact I have bead heads that are very effective. I think some patterns look wrong with them. At this point for me lead has it's purposes just not on the flies I need to be heavy.

Something I forgot to mention, when you're wrapping it on you must make tight butting turns to get this much weight in this small an area. After some experimentation I found this to be true, also it'll lay much more even for you. Which makes smoothing out the underbody much easier, with dubbing it doesn't matter but if you're are planning on weaving over it or wrapping quills for the body it does. What you want to do is wrap toward the bend and back to the eye four times, then one more time back and to the front staying more in the middle of the wraps. Leave yourself room at the eye so you can finish the fly at the eye and get that nice smooth transition to the head, at the back stop far enough from the bend so you can go into the bend to cover the thread but not go too far down around and into the heal of the bend, I think this area must stay clear of materials otherwise the hook gets bumped out of the fishes jaw, or you never really get a good solid hook set. Jmho
