Wapsi Cyclops Bead Eye - 24 Pk.

Most fly fishermen agree that the use of bead head flies originated in Europe in the early 1980's. Several innovative tyers added beads to the heads of their flies for extra flash and to give their nymphs extra weight to sink them deep in swift currents. These flies were so successful that word of their effectiveness spread like wildfire and within a very short time fly tyers world wide began modifying existing patterns and designing new ones utilizing beads.

In 1945, Lacey Gee of Independence, Iowa began a fly tying business. With some financial help and encouragement from the owner of Wapsi Produce Company, Lacey established the Wapsi® Fly Company. Previously, he had been employed by the poultry processing plant, which provided a ready source of feathers. That, along with incentive, imagination and a good deal of skill in fly tying, became the basis for his new business. The name, Wapsi, was a natural, as the buildings housing it were located on the banks of the Wapsipinicon River.

In 1978 Tom and his wife, Ann, moved their family and Wapsi to Mountain Home, Arkansas. The promise of milder climate, great fishing, and new facilities provided the incentive. Today, Wapsi fills 62,000 square feet and plans to continue expansion. They are pleased to be a part of a growing industry where they can count on their competitors as friends.

Wapsi - Quality fly tying materials since 1945.
