Grannyknot-
If you have trouble with the beads, I've bent the barbs down, slightly "straightened" the hook then bent it back. Some beads can be squeezed with a pliers to make the round holes slightly more oval to facilitate sliding the bead.

I've looked at weaving wire bodies for my Stonefly nymphs. They might look nice, but I don't want to have people see me cry when I snag them on the bottom.
