Any body know where I can find 2mm-3mm beads that will float. I have found them in styrofoam that kids use to put in slime. But would like a foam rubber bead if I can find them ?

Check the tactical fly fisher store or fly fish food that seems like something they would have kinda sounds like something that would be used a little in still water fishing

For tying boobies, fabs and other flies with bouyant elements tubing or sheet is much simpler to work with than balls as balls are a pain to tie in. And I don't think the fish notice. You can trim tubing to a rounded eye shapes after tying in.

You can buy tubing/booby cord in various diameters or you can punch your own out of blocks of plastazote.
