Huge fan

Reviewer: A viewer 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.

These beads are great

Reviewer: A viewer 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.

Environment Friendly

Reviewer: A viewer 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
