Stealhead Trout beads and Bead Boxes
Fishing is a process of outwitting your prey with creations that most imitate what fish are feeding on at a specific time of year. Matching exactly what fish are looking for, will magnify your fishing experience during spawns and when fish are seeking only eggs. All the eggs they see are SINGLE... drifting along the bottom of the stream one at a time. NOT in clusters. Salmon, Trout and Steelhead do not spawn in clusters. You will occasionally see two and sometimes three eggs sticking together but the mass majority are singles.
Trout beads also have the exact same neutral buoyancy as natural fish eggs, which is another reason (besides color) that make this technique so effective. From the East coast to the West coast... Salmon, Trout and Steelhead guides have counted on trout beads egg matching colors to maximize catch rates when fish are chasing eggs.
HLS Beads Pegs
The new HLS Bead Pegs provide a simple and easy way to peg fishing beads. The soft yet durable rubber peg wedges inside the bead and around the fishing line, protecting the line from nicks and scrapes. The PEG-IT replaces toothpicks, that can damage line.
