When your streamer, sculpin, leech or deep-running minnow needs more weight than a bead head, cone heads are just the ticket.
Coneheads – Nickel Silver
$3.95 – $8.95
Notes on selecting a size:
3/16″ is for trout flies.
1/4″ is the standard size for conehead salmon flies like Popsicles, Kandy Kanes, Alaskabous, as well as #6 Dolly Llamas.
3/8″ is quite heavy and is the default size for #2 Dolly Llamas.
Finally, if you want an extra heavy #2 Dolly Llama go with the 7/16
Quantities per package: 3/16″ – 20, 1/4″ – 24, 3/8″ – 15, 7/16″ – 12
