Thread: bead chart?

  1. #1

    Default bead chart?

    I'm needing to get some beads for smaller nymphs I fish a copper john a ton and have great luck with it but the beads I have will only go on a size 18 mustad 3096B hook and I want some beads for the smaller guys like size 20 and 22 and also small midges

    but I don't really know what sizes I need
    gonna be ordering a few things from JStockard here soon so thought I would ask you guys what beads to use

    Use 1.5mm or 1/16" ...both the same size for #20- #24:

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

    As a new tier, I'm trying to picture tying a size 22 copper john.
    If I did it successfully, I would store it in a T gauge model railroad car.
    There's not a day that goes by that I don't wonder how dreary this world would be if elk were bald and birds had no feathers.
