The Story

Replacing the need for lead wire, Fly Wire is safe for the environment, yet sinks fast. High density for weighting and easy malleability. Winds tightly and breaks off easily to avoid having to be cut, like other lead substitutes.

Comes on a ½-oz. spool. Sizes: .015, .020, .025, .030.

Made in USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to tie with! I use this product to tie fresh water shrimp and scud patterns. At first I was not sure how this product compared to lead. I used the same diameter and found that the non toxic wire weighted and tied about the same. An added plus it doesn't get on your fingers like lead and it is great for the environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non Toxic and supple This is the only wire weight that i use to get my flies deep fast. I avoid lead in any form possible because it is a toxic metal and I hate the thought of adding any of it to the world's water supply. There's too much in the water all ready!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great wire Use the wire for starting nymphs or larvae patterns. Very pliable and easy to work with. Maybe a smaller diameter option would be nice for smaller fly patterns? Also feel good about minimizing the use of lead. Thanks Orvis for selling this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding led free wire Orvis led free wire is the perfect product to safely add distributed weight to your any fly pattern you are tying. Led free is safe for handling and safe for the river.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Add weight without adding lead! I am grateful that from top to bottom Orvis is trying to look out for the environment. This is one of those examples. Although I'm not sure exactly what lead does to the ecosystem of a stream Orvis has provided a way to get the benefit without sacrificing quality.
