In the process of tying beadhead flies, one of the greatest frustrations is getting those beads in place. The smaller the bead, the higher the frustration. The concept of slide-lock tweezers was patented by Tom a couple of years ago and he applied this same great principle to creating the bead-locking tweezers, named the Bead Nabbers™. These tweezers have a small indent in the end to easily grasp the bead, and the slide lock engages the bead so that it can be slid onto the hook without losing one bead. This is a tool that belongs on every fly tiers bench.

“Any tier who has spent time crawling around on the floor looking for beads is going to love this tool. Tom Trozera sent me a prototype and I was hooked from the start. The Bead Nabbers will hold the bead while you insert the hook. No more dropping beads!” 

- Paul Stimpson
