Exclusive: Tying the perfect bead.
Many, many tiers have a tough time getting many types of eyes or beads to sit properly. If you've tried you'll already know that eyes always seem to twist, and beads always some to slide up and down the hook shank when the fly has been cast a few times... but it doesn't have to be that way!
The solution is super simple: Super Glue! These 'super' glues - also known as cyanoacrylates - have incredible strength, strong enough to meld metal. Simply add a tiny drip after the first couple of times you've turned the tying thread and the eyes will like stay in place until the end of time.
You can also use this method for beads: just add a drip before the bead slides down onto the hook shank.
