Red bead Bug

How to make quick and easy segmented bodies using just glass beads and thread. Glass embroidery beads are available in a wide range of sizes and colours from craft shops and online. They make great segmented bodies for river and stillwater bugs and nymphs by threading the beads onto a hook and then separating with turns of thread or floss in a contrasting colour.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
