Try this bead in 7mm when fishing behind spawning sockeye and 9mm or 10mm when fishing behind spawning Kings or Silvers. This is also a great bead to fish in tanic, tea colored water. The 7mm is our go to for rainbow trout eating sockeye eggs.
BnR Soft Beads – 50/50 Roe Be Dark
The 50/50 Concept: 50/50 beads 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 still 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. Often the eggs will get washed up and become targets for trout and char.
The 50/50 Roe Be Dark is a part of BnR Tackle’s Roe Edition line of beads, This collection of bead colors and sizes is designed to mimic real salmon eggs found in Alaska and other West Coast streams and rivers. Available in 8mm and 10mm sizes.
