Hi guys, 

 from a while  new kind of  weights are on the market. Weights for tying nymphs. These beads are designed to flip the nymph  with the point up and o behave similar with jig lures.

So here is a nymph tied. I tested them this Spring,  a had a few nice brown trout on them. I used them in deep pools and they worked ok. Not so many snags but I lost a few between big rocks on the bottoms.

I will tie a small "army" and I will  use more.

Good nymphs, Lucian.  What is the name (brand) of those beads?  Is it hard to keep them properly oriented when tying them in?

Mr. Vasies is probably using the Troutline bead rather than the hairline bead, if you want specifics. https://www.troutlin...ten-beads-2-3mm

Hareline is a distributor they do not manufacture the beads. It is likely that they come from the same source. In any case most U.S. tiers will be purchasing those beads from outlets, retail and online, here rather than ordering them from Lucian in Romania. He has other products on his site that one can only get from him...in Europe

 Those beads used by me are from Troutline . But I'm sure that you can  find  in USA in different store. The design  ( shape) of these beads was developed by french business Bidoz a few good years ago. As you know, the main source of tungsten is China. These beads now are copied by chinese factories and they sold everywhere. Different  sellers like Troutline, Hareline and so on have these beads colored  in different ways.

 

here is photo with those from  Europe:

Pros for these beads:

* you can  use in thorax area with nice effect and more balanced behavior

*you can give an eccentric effect on normal hooks  something similar with jig hooks ( especially where jig hooks are banned ), the fly will "swim" with  point up ->less snags 

 

Cons:

*more expensive than classic tungsten or  slotted tungsten beads

*not so comfortable in tying, you need a lot of thread  to be fixed on the hook shank

 

I hope it helps smile.png

cheers, 

Lucian

Yep, that helps, Lucian.  Thank you, very much.

The picture helped even more.  It's an assumption at this point, but ...

... the notch is how the weight stays oriented on the hook.

 

I'll be looking for those next time I'm buying stuff.

Bidoz Off-Bead
Tungsten beads the Off-Bead has been made for tying flies on standard hooks (with straight shanks, barbless and barbed too).
Those beads has specially added additional cut in the hole which allows for easy insertion the bead on the hook.

Ah ... so it's not for orientation to the hook.

I'm thinking of making up a Carolina Ticker Nymph using a streamer hook out of these:

These show promise also:

Come to think of it, I could probably rig up a Drop-shot nymph rig also.
