Glossary C



Conehead is a term used to describe a type of metal or tungsten bead with a conical shape used in fly tying. The conehead is placed on the hook shank before the fly is tied and adds weight to the fly, causing it to sink faster in the water column. It also creates a more streamlined and attractive appearance, making it a popular choice for streamer patterns.
