Tying flies is an essential skill for any fly fisherman. By using different materials, you can create flies that mimic the appearance of various insects and other small creatures that fish feed on. In this blog post, we'll take a look at how and when to use beads, coneheads, and eyes when tying flies.


Beads - Beads are small, round objects that are often used as embellishments on jewelry and other items. In fly tying, beads are used to add weight to the fly so that it sinks more quickly. They can also be used to create the illusion of an insect's body. Beads come in a variety of colors, so you can choose ones that will best match the insect you're trying to imitate.

Coneheads - Coneheads are small cones that are attached to the hook to add weight and help the fly sink more quickly. They can also be used to create the illusion of an insect's head. Coneheads come in a variety of colors, so you can choose ones that will best match the insect you're trying to imitate.

Eyes - Eyes are small discs that are attached to the hook to create the illusion of an insect's eyes. Eyes come in a variety of colors, so you can choose ones that will best match the insect you're trying to imitate. In general, it's best to use eyes that are slightly larger than the beads or coneheads you're using for the body of the fly.


In conclusion, knowing how and when to use beads, coneheads, and eyes is a valuable skill for any fly fisherman or fly tyer. By using these materials judiciously, you can create flies that imitate various insects and other small creatures effectively. As always, practice makes perfect so tie some flies today!
