That last part is really funny, Ray. Actually, my 'pure' heart says " ... whatever it takes." :twisted:

Beads for trout flies are Gods way of helping those "special" fly fishermen that need a little help. And lick windows. I really should use more beads. I qualify. :lol:

Nice! I need to tie a few of those up for Slovenia in July. Is there any chance of a materials listing?
