Tangerine is the other bright bead color that racks up the trout and char. The white swirl that only comes from hand painting takes the realism way up. Fish the 6mm behind spawning sockeye and the 8mm around chum, king or silvers.
Are they holding right behind a log jam? On the far side of fast current? The Liquid Wrench Fly will pry them out! An ultra-fast sinking tungsten bead on a 90 degree hook will drop this fly into the tightest of spots. Flame Red & Orange is one of our favorite color combos for steelhead.
Glo Roe is a pale opaque colored bead that nicely imitates a dead egg that has been in the river for awhile. The white swirl that only comes from hand painting makes it very realistic. When fresh beads in the red or orange tones are not working, give Glo Roe a try.
