I've had more luck with the bead headed flies than any others in a wide variety of conditions. It's weird how they won't bite on something that is supposed to imitate an insect that is hatching at a given time, but they will bite on one of these.

Yup.

For Summer Run Steelhead fishing (here on the Rogue) I almost always use a two fly set up. Top one will be what-ever ... and the trailer will always be a PN. 95% of the time a bead head.

First one (weighted even off a dry line) is to get the leader/flies 'down,' keep them there, and get 'their attention.' The PN will be the one that hooks 90% of the fish.
milt spawn likes this.
