Trout beads
    Since we still got hard water thought I do some steelhead fishing. Anyone ever try beads for them. I saw a buddy use them so I figure I'd give them a try.

RE: Trout beads
So how did your friend use the beads? When I read the title, I thought of fly tying different patterns with beads.

RE: Trout beads
Yes I am in the process of tying some up will post pics. You can also put them on a main line or just put on a hook by itself. It seems to work better as a tandem rig. To put on a hook take a lighter and all you do is heat the eye of the hook hot. Then slip the bead over it.

Sweet, I'll be sitting at the tying bench some today too. Looking forward to seeing your creations.

RE: Trout beads
I should start tying flies. I fish for trout a lot, but I mainly use small rattletraps, and they work very well.

Fly fishing from the yak sounds like fun.

RE: Trout beads
Roytoy,
There are a lot of good tiers out there to learn from. Many Trout Unlimited chapters put on fly tying classes. Our local chapter is providing all the equipment and the materials. We meet once a week to tie and the cost per night is TWO BUCKS. Check out your local TU chapter: Find a Local TU Chapter Here at least you can ask questions. Places like Orvis and Cabelas even put on fly tying seminars or classes.

Another way is to find a good on line instructor. I really liked David Cammis when I started on YouTube. If you can get over the 240P video quality and the heavy Brit accent, the material he has to offer is still superb.

Even though these are still a little older, at least they are done in 720P: SCFlytying

The above links are a complete kind of fly tying lesson introduction. These days I tend to watch people like Davie McPhail, or in the Riffle on YouTube.

Check out a few videos and see if you think that it would be for you.

That's awesome. I never heard of these called trout beads before. It makes total sense, they do look like salmon eggs. I have always used them bass fishing with a Carolina rig to protect the knot at the end of the main line from the sliding weight. Or I will use them making my own spinner baits. Thanks for the ideas!

It's always fun to sit behind the vise. I really enjoy the time to be creative. I really like putting thread on a hook. Nicely done, those should catch some fish.

RE: Trout beads
What's more fun clay is actually catching a fish on something you created.
