Finally found a useful pattern for the pastel colored beadchain I picked up a while back. Sage green is a subdued enough color to put in to service on most traditional patterns, however, hot pink and orange are a bit too loud for ordinary use. But for an Emo fly, it's craptacular.
Another Hobby Lobby score: normally $3.99 per four 20" strands, %50 off the pack of beadchain equals thirty cents per foot. 30¢! Compare that to #6 (1/8"/3.2mm) nickel plated steel ball chain at $0.31 per foot (100 foot spool), and you've got a deal. Under fly tyer principles, you have to stock up on this kind of bargain.
Go hang yourself.
