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

    Flytire: Thanks for posting this link up as a new thread so I could make it a sticky. That link is one of the best that I have seen on helping select the correct bead size vs the hook size.

    Larry it would be a Real Help & good Info to Catologue/Make a Sticky instead of everyone Printing all The info out which inevitably gets lost or mis-placed.

    The original link now gives an error message. Try the one I posted below to access the original guide posted by Flytire.

    The web folks for the site seem to be preventing us from linking directly to the guide. Here is a link to the page on the site where the guide is posted. I found it at the bottom of the page under "Nymph-HeadŽ Nymph Tying Materials".

    Todd, that link is taking me to an E-commerce software site.

    Not sure why, but with the link that flytire posted again I get the same Ecommerce site.

    Even when I've re-posted the same link, (I've deleted it) when I go back to it I get that Ecommerce site.

    I can get to the chart from the Flymen link that Fred posted.

    Strange! Anyone else having this problem?

    Todd, your link is also working for me now.
