Welcome to the (Tungsten) Fishing Bead Shop.

Why Tungsten?

All serious fly fisherman know that having tungsten bead head flies works wonders for catch rates when fishing fast, clear streams. They also work wonders in any other deep water situation! Get the flies to the bottom where the fish are and you just HAVE to catch more fish! TUNGSTEN IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS!

How heavy is tungsten?

Tungsten is one of the heaviest metals available. It is SO HEAVY that it is used for making heavy metal alloys that are used in ballast keels for yachts and tail ballast for commercial aircraft! Tungsten has a density of 19.25 grams cm-3 near room temperature. In comparison, lead only has a density of 11.34 grams cm-3. So tungsten is almost twice as heavy as lead!
