Hi Pocono,

Take 2x approx. 3inch lengths of flexi-floss, simply feed them through the seed beads, { all the beads can be looped onto the flexi-floss in one go, say via a small bit of wire etc } then slip over the hook point and run bead up to hook eye. I like to just feed one on at a time and superglue it in place. Just a point with the center legs, leave a gap after your third bead to place the first center leg over the hook shank with an overhand knot, place a dot of glue { i use cocktail sticks } to the downside of the knot, then gently secure via fouth bead. Finish fly then go back to center leg by adding another strand of flexi floss, again using over hand knot. Add a dot of super glue on top of knot to secure. Leave to dry, place hook in vice, hold all legs up together, then cut, should leave all legs level.

Fred.
