Slotted Tungsten Beads
It can´t be helped, but trout and most fish mostly feed on
nymphs and aquatics that live in the water, not on the
surface. If you want to angle effectively near the bottom in
a deep, powerful stream or river or get deeper in a lake
how do you quickly get the fly down deep? In the
summer, the only way to reach trout that head for cooler
water in the deeper pools is to get the fly down to where
they are.

The problem how to get the fly into depth fast is fairly
obvious.
Tungsten is about 70% heavier than lead and
is more than twice as heavy than brass
. Furthermore
(and more importantly to us), it is
non-toxic, therefore
more friendly to the environment.

Why slotted beads instead of cyclops beads? Slotted beads have been specially designed for clearing the bend on narrow gap hooks (spey hooks
especially) and for jig hook applications. Also, slotted hooks are easier to clear a barb if you're not using barbless hooks.
