The word is out: fishing beads for trout and steelhead is a deadly, effective method of fishing! And there’s more to bead fishing than meets the eye.

Beads attract fish because they look like fish eggs that they want to eat. Beads come in a variety of sizes and colors to reflect the different roe (eggs) produced by different fish. For example, Sockeye salmon produce the smallest roe (6 mm). Coho roe are medium-sized (8 mm). King salmon produce the biggest (8-10 mm).
