Brass Bead Heads are the most common and classic bead head type of all. Bright, clear colours is achieved through a durable powder coating. Rainbow is anodized. These bead heads are lighter than the ones made of tungsten and therefore don't add as much weight for the fly keeping them easy casting. You can tie nice variation of standard wet flies with these and you can use one or two beads per fly and mix sizes and colors. If you want to add extra weight, you can wrap some Lead Free Round Wire, which is less toxic alternative to standard lead wire, around the hook shank before tying the pattern.
Use for all kind of wet flies from insect imitations to leeches and other larger patterns. These are countersunk so the bead is easier to slide around the bend of the hook. It also leaves more space for tying the body leading to neater outcome.
