Those look nice, I tied some up and tried them for ice fishing but I had no luck. I'm not giving up on them though.

Thanks for the heads up. The Hobby Lobby near me had it in 4-5 colors, as well as some slightly larger bead chain (about the size sold as small bead chain in fly tying stores) in metallic red and metallic blue and matte white. All of it not only came home with me, but it was all on sale 50% off. Can't beat that.

Some years ago I got hold of some gold plated 1mm 1/25th inch bead chain. Though that is far from the smallest. If you want dumbell eyes down to #24 then use the connector between the beads in bead chain.
