Hi, Does any one have any suggestions on books with all the new bead head paterns in them. I have tied the basics, but the fly shop now have several new styles that look sharp.

I don't recall any books solely on bead heads. To me they are a design element providing weight and a different look than other materials. Glass beads are also interesting. Does anyone have any ideas on books?

Randall Kaufmann's Tying Nymphs has several patterns that incorporate beadheads, but like John has already said I am not aware of any books that deal with them solely. Bear in mind that many existing nymph patterns can be modified to be beadhead patterns.
