Subject: [VFB] Tiny Fly Question

 
OK all you tiny fly tying experts LOL.. I am 
stumped with a problem.. I took the advice of tying a bigger fly, then working 
my way down in hook sizes till I get to where I want. Problem is, I'm tying (or 
TRYING) my Pink Panfish Producer, and I'm down to a size 20. Problem is, the 
gold  bead for the head. The ones I have are either too small to go around 
the sharp bend in the hook, or they are too big, and they either fall right off 
the eye end of the fly, or get stuck, with the eye buried halfway inside the 
bead. I have tried the beads front wards, backwards and sideways. Is there a 
secret to this??? Should I just make the "gold=bead head" out of gold tying 
thread, or tiny tinsel?? Or do you just not tie flies this small with a bead 
head on them?? Thanks for ANY help, Chuck
