Pucci Plastic Beads
Chartreuse isn't Chartreuse.
I ordered these and was disappointed because the Chartreuse color is more Green or Lime Green than Chartreuse. Not sure if I am going to hang on to them or send them back, but be warned that these are not a true Chartreuse color.
The beads themselves seem to be just as good of quality as any other beads, the color just didn't match the description.
You can see from my photo that these beads are not Chartreuse, and are compared to other rigs I have with Chartreuse beads on them.
If the color would have actually been Chartreuse they would have gotten a 5 start rating. Nothing wrong with the quality, they just need to rename the color.

Have been using these beads for steelhead. Tie on a #4 or #2 hook, peg the bead about an inch above the hook and drift the bead on the bottom . I only use 1 bead at a time as this appears the work well. I also use the beads without pegging them above yarn flies I tie and they seem be be very effective.

save your hooks
These plastic beads are great to put between your hook and weights. When you use a weight such as a barrel that slides up and down your line it slams into your knot on your hook causing damage to the knot and soon by by hook . Using a plastic bead inbetween the weight and hook stops that problem and saving hook troubles

I got these for making fluke rigs, they are much smaller than I imagined they'd be. That was my fault for selecting the wrong product.
They reflect light great though, not much else you can say... they are beads.
