Hot Color Beads

Hot Color Beads are the standard brass, fly tying bead only in painted colors, used for beadhead patterns. These beads are specially drilled for fly tying, with the hole on one end smaller so it will not slide over the hook eye.

We stock these beads in the following three sizes:
  • Small: 1/8"
  • Medium: 5/32"
  • Large: 3/16"
We carry the Hot Color Beads in the five colors shown in the table below.

There are 25 beads per package.

To order, please select the color and size from the lists above.

 The standard!
Pros: Easy To Use, Functional
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: It doesn't get much better than this. These hot color beads are the standard. You can paint your own, but unless you're making them by the 100s, it just isn't worth it. You can get these in a variety of colors and sizes.
