Tip For Tying Small Beadhead Nymphs

Tying small (size 18 and below) beadhead flies is a pain.  Here is a tip to help you make the process a little easier and  more efficient.  Preload the beads on the hook prior to actually tying.  Do all 25 (if you can) in one night.  Store them in the TMC magnets that are provided when you buy your hooks and place them in a tackle box so that they don't rattle off.

In doing so when you are ready to start actually tying you can crank out a lot more flies and have a lot more fun in the process.  Of course this requires one lousy night of prebeading your hooks.
