Substantial 4mm plated brass dumbbells, silver and black nickel, also available in gold, orange and green. Funky give a weight of 0.5g for this size and type.
Typically I would use these for medium to large Clousers, where their shape and weight are part of the fly. A weighted Clouser dives between pulls.
Dumbbells are also a handy and quite typical means for weighting the head of an Intruder. The purpose is to get the fly down, in flowing water, the head-heavy jinking motion due to stripping pulls is a smaller part of the deal, but a head weighted fly will head to the river bed whenever water flow drops. Glossy and smooth, very well finished.
Price: £2.50 per 20
