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.
