Offset Tungsten Beads (25 Pack)
$4.50 – $5.99
Offset Tungsten Beads aka Jig Off, Inst Jig tungsten beads are very new in most fly tying circles. The shape is more like a tear drop with an eccentric hole which helps the fly to act like a jig style fly, even if the hook is a standard shank nymph or streamer hook and not a jig style hook. This allows the hook too stay with the tip up and reduce the snags and leads to more fish being hooked securely.
*Using Offset tungsten beads on standard shank nymph hooks instantly turn your fly into “jig” style flies.
*The hook point will always point up, which should allow more hook gap space and better hook ups.
*Designed to accept many different models and sizes of standard straight shank hooks.
*10-15% heavier than equivalent sizes of slotted or countersunk tungsten beads because less of the bead is removed to accommodate the hook.
*Just put the recessed side of the bead toward the rear of the hook, slide it up near the hook eye and create a thread dam or wrap some lead and jam into the recess of the bead and place some superglue too make it extra snug.
