Guide Model Trout Beads

Home/BEADS/Guide Model Trout Beads

Our exclusive Guide Model Trout Beads are hand painted by local Alaskan guides with several coats of nail polish paint, then clear coated for added durability. The white swirl can only be acheived by hand painting and it adds a huge amount of realism.

Additionally, hand painted beads have a depth and color that is unmatched and they flat out fish better. If you are fishing for rainbows in Alaska during the salmon spawn you owe it to yourself to have some of these.
