  QUESTION: Finding Tungsten beads at a decent price, 16 Jul 2005, USA

I am an avid fly fisherman and fly tier and I am using lead but trying to switch to Tungsten and I am having a hard time finding Tungsten beads at a decent price. Would anyone know of a place to get cheaper beads and bypass fly shops where a person could purchase them from a manufacturer and buy them in bulk. I appreciate your time.

ANSWER: 16 Jul 2005

Dear Charles,

please see the Lead Fishing Sinkers and Jigs in Canada: Review of their Use Patterns and Toxic Impacts on Wildlife Includes list of manufacturers of nonlead fishing sinkers

Update 2012: Where to find lead-free alternatives -  in Australia Aquarium Monsters  

 See links below for where to purchase tungsten beads

Regards and happy lead-free fishing!
Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
