This wire is made of a non-toxic heavy alloy for use when you want to add weight to the hook shank and lead wire is not appropriate. Now in 5 sizes. Spool fits standard fly tying bobbins. Density is about 60% that of lead wire.

Too light

Reviewer: from Fort Collins, CO

A lot of bulk when wrapped, but seems too light. I know the hazards of lead over time I can see the problems of using it too much. I still prefer lead but will manage to use this anyway until they come up with a better alternative.
<i><b>J. Stockard comments - </b>An alternative is Spirit River's tungsten thread (actually wire). It's very thin so may require many wraps but could do the trick.</i>

My Wire!!!!

Reviewer: from Herndon, VA US

this is the wire i use for all the flies that i tie. I find that it bends very nicely, does not come undone, and cuts easily. Its a big bonus that it is lead free.

I use this wire for under body on streamers and large czech nymphs

Lighter than lead but great for most applications

Reviewer: from Blacksburg, VA US

Love this wire, it is not as heavy as lead but it is safer to work with and still sinks pretty well. If you need to get deeper than this stuff will let you go then you need to use tungsten beads or add weight to your tippet. It tears right off just by pinching at the end of the wraps and winds very easily without breaking as easily as lead. One tip to keep the thread from slipping between the coils is to leave your tag end long when you tie in your thread and pull it back and tight alongside the coils and wrap your thread around both the tag end of thread and the wire, then turn and go the other way. This is quick to do and as long as you keep it tight allows the thread to form a "platform" for subsequent wraps to go against without slipping into the coils.

Reviewer: from Belgrade, MT.

Awesome product that is easy to work with. Perfect for flies used where lead weight is not an option, like Yellowstone Park.

Does the job

Reviewer: from Manhattan, KS

Easy to work with, and adds just the amount of weight that you want. The .020 wire doesn't add much bulk, so it's easy to keep your profile the way you want it.
