Loose Beadheads?
By Richard Zieger

When using beadheads, if the beadhead wobbles on the hook shank a little this is a quick way to fill in the gap. I save little pieces of chenille. Put the bead on, attach the thread with a few soft wraps. Then make two soft wraps around a little bit of chenille. Then with your bodkin push this into the gap between the hook shank and the bead edge. This is a little faster than building up a thread dam. Soft wraps so the thread will move up the hook shank. ~ Richard Zieger
