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.

Couldnt see how small they were from the photos. I have filled orders for Charlies in as small as #8s... but those are tiny. Still good looking bugs.

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.
