BnR’s 50/50 Roe Natural is a good bead to fish when there are a bazillion eggs in the water. It is a very universal color combination that can cover a large range of fishing situations. Try this in 7mm behind spawning Sockeye or Pinks and in the 9 or 10mm size behind Chums and Kings.
BnR Soft Beads – 50/50 Roe Natural
The 50/50 Concept is a two tone bead designed to mimic eggs that have been sitting on the river bed, where one side of the egg is exposed to light and the other side has been shielded by the bottom. The exposed side of a natural egg will turn a milky white as uv light breaks down the natural proteins of the egg and the unexposed side still looks translucent. Often these eggs will get washed up and become targets for trout and char.
The 50/50 Roe Roe Natural is part of BnR Tackle’s Roe Edition line of soft beads, This collection of colors and sizes is designed to mimic real salmon eggs found in Alaska and other West Coast streams and rivers. Available in 7mm, 9mm and 10mm sizes.
