    Split shot with a touch of paint if you want coloured?

    Don't forget a spot of waterproof superglue before you pinch the shot on the shank. Otherwise it could open.

    I'm sorry , but I can't help wondering what you would need smaller than 1:5 mm beeds for ?
    I'm intrigued !
    I fish and tie some small bu*"ers, but 1:5 is to big for your needs ? !,
    What are you tieing ?
    And more to the point, why ?
    What are you up to ? !!!
    Yours sincerely,

    Yes, I do heartily repent. I repent I had not done more mischief; and that we did not cut the throats of them that took us, and I am extremely sorry that you aren't hanged as well as we.

    I'll have a bit of a scooby on the French sites for you, if I find them I'll let you know.
    I still don't believe you though, I'm sure you know something I don't

    Like corto I am wondering why the need for sub-1.5mm beads. I tie grayling nymphs down to 18's and only need the 1.5mm in really skinny water for rather spooky grayling.

    In your shoes I might try Bogdan Gawlik in Poland.

    I got 1.2mm beads a few years back from Joel at tungsten beads plus but they are not listed on his site anymore, maybe drop him an email as he may have a few packets kicking about...I could hardly pick one up and struggled to get them on the hook and that was when my eyesight and hands worked properly, it would be torture for anyone 40+ but maybe thats the real reason you want them, some sort of self punishment
