Default Re: bead substitute

You can build a head with wire wraps that equals the diameter of a bead

They are called "wire heads" and are tied by Doug korn

Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
