Re: Trout Beads for Salmon River NY
These guys are all correct. I I hooked up swinging an egg sucking leech on a single hand fly rod. The fish spit it out 10 seconds later. That was more rewarding than the 3 other I caught that day on beads. But fishing is fishing and beads work best, no contest. Do watch about fishing beads in fly only zones, dnr guys in civilian clothes will be watching. If you want to stay fly (get it?) maybe get some plastic eggs and stick a hook through them. Another excellent option is some tungsten bead head Glo bugs with sparsely tied wool. Do what makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You may well get skunked regardless, steel heading is rough.
Above all have fun.
