I got a spool of .015in, 60 ft, White, 7 strand Beadalon. I got it at Michaels Craft Store for like 4 bucks.

The beads can be used for a few reasons. I know when using mono-filament to join the two hooks, the beads kept the line from being cut by teeth or from wear. Sometimes I used the beads, sometimes I dont. All depends on the pattern.

Like with these two patterns, I generally don't use any beads because the space between the two hooks is small and there is zonker covering it. It's all preference I guess

But all of these patterns have beads. You can hardly tell

I have some 0.02 7 strand that I use more for musky flies or if I'm spanning a larger gap. I use 0.015 19 strand for most of my trout stuff. As far as beads go, just play around with different #'s and sizes. Most Galloup-style flies I use 2 small beads. For bigger stuff I normally use a few 6-8mm beads depending on the pattern

Ok, very good. Thanks a lot guys, that's exactly what I was looking for. "T" that's one fine looking school of streamers you've got there, real nice tying. I'm not tying what you would call monsters so I don't believe I'll need beads on these. Appreciate all the responses.

It's great stuff I have it in 7 different colors. I tie a bunch of different patterns with it.

Dan, I'll trade you some of the slate colored deer hair w/mahogany tips for a little bit of each color of that stuff. What say you?

Thanks! Yeah you should be fine without any beads. If you do need them though, you might as well get them while you're buying the beadalon. I got some nice matte olive ones for like 98 cents haha

My new favorite sculpin pattern. Hops across the bottom realistically. Buying the expensive helmets are killer though.

Nice sculpins LLR. I've been tying up some smaller sculpin patterns for the spring. I love streamer fishing, and I've been picking up more fish with the smaller guys. Yeah, sometimes a bit smaller, but it's still awesome to see them take it.

These are 3" Long. The tan one is for the stained water and olive for clear.

This ones not so small. I think it's like 4-5". Have yet to water test it.

tloomis, real nice. Is the fly just rabbit for the tail and deer hair collar and head? Can't tell from the pic if there is any body material. I have to try these.

Great looking patterns. Fun thread. It would be great to see a few that are wet. Some of the best looking dry ones tend to lose a little something in the water.
