Huge fan

Reviewer: from Carbondale, IL US

I recently started using glass beads and I am a huge fan. They are great for creating bodies on all kinds of flies (I like them on caddis and stone). Red beads are great for egg sucking leaches. I will commonly thread a few on some mono to create extended bodies. Using Antron instead of mono and then wrapping the antron back over the beads creates a great emerger look. You just cant beat the colors and slight, but natural looking variations.

Environment Friendly

Reviewer: from Apo, AP US

These glass beads provide a wide spectrum of color and will leave your riverbed just the way you found it without metal. Many sizes for all hooks. give them a try if not for the unmatched color selection but for environment purposes. Sometimes you just feel a little green

These beads are great

Reviewer: from Little Elm, TX US

I started to use beads on my flies from the local arts and craft shop. This is a much better way to go. The beads are the right size and a lot more consistent as well as matched better for hooks. They give a nice air bubble appearance in the water to create nice shedding cases on emergers. Great way to add light to other patterns as well.

Perfect for nymphs

Reviewer: from MA, US

I went with small iridescent grey beads for nymph heads, the beads are great and a single package has a ton of them in it. The small size is perfect for size 16-18 nymphs. The iridescent grey color looks excellent, especially next to peacock herl on pheasant tail nymphs.
