And ... where do YOU buy the beads from flytire?  I Googled "Fringe Bead", "Teardrop Fringe Bead" and "Offset Hole Fringe Bead".  Etsy is the only source that keeps popping up.

flytire, this has become my go to damsel pattern, thanks for the post before this I was using a braided marabou body. your pattern ties faster, fishes longer, (durable) and the fish seem to love it. (head to head comparison on the water)
