Dazl Dumbells

By Magnus Angus

Smoothly plated brass. The ends are curved, making it far easier to paint an eye dot.

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.
