Glass rattles are expensive, especially considering I have to tie at least two of a new pattern until it starts looking right. Just took delivery of 300 rattles (3mm, 4mm, and 5mm) from a seller I found on eBay, They cost less than 1/2 Bass Pro and several online shops - less than $.18 each, no tax and free shipping. Just thought I'd pass it along. cool
In this life there is fly fishing and tying...and then there is all that other stuff in between that doesn't matter.

Good information. What type of flies do you tie with them?

That's a great price. I like the rounded end ones more than the pointed ones.

I tie shrimp and baitfish patterns with 3mm rounded Pyrex rattles. Seems to help in murky/muddy water.

Want a cheaper price for some great fly fishing supplies check out Aliexpress. Set up an account and order you tail off! Some of these vendors take 2-4 weeks to get your items but the savings is well worth the wait. They have feathers, thread, wire, tackle anything you may need at cheaper than EBay prices!!!
I dare anyone to find cheaper prices ANYWHERE! Post if you do but I think I have you all beat!!!
