Glass beads are great for Zebra Midges, Caddis patterns, or any fly that you want to add a little bit of weight to. These are high quality Japanese beads of extremely uniform in size which makes them perfect for tying.
Transparent bead allows base materials of the fly to show through.
The center of the bead is has a silver coating creating brilliant reflections through the colored bead
Metallic & Opaque
Metalic and Opaque beads look very much like conventional beadheads, but are significantly lighter than brass or tungsten allowing for a slower sink rate.
Pearlescent beads have a shimmering quality to the exterior of the bead.
Rainbow beads have a metalic multi-color finish.
