The Nymph-Head range of tungsten fly tying beads are the most advanced, realistic and heaviest fly tying beads on the market today.
Nymph-Head beads represent the next generation of fly tying beads. This patented design has improved the common, round bead by adding a pair of realistic 3D "Nymph Eyes" as a key feature of these tungsten, countersunk fly tying beads. This simple enhancement adds realisim and unprecendented detail to the bead while retaining the proven benefits of shape, flash and weight on bead-head fly patterns.
**Color the eye portion using DecoColor Paint markers for the ultimate in realism!! Find them Here!
The "Nymph Eyes" mimic those of the natural insect enabling the fly tyer to create more effective and realistic imitations of aquatic fish food. Remember that from a fish's perspective...."Eyes tell me that something is alive...and life means a protein source".
These beads are NOT painted or enamel-baked which easily chip or fade. They are anodized.
Nymph Heads come in 4 sizes and 5 colors. 15 beads per package.
