Troutbeads are a proven lure and are a great choice for salmon, steelhead and trout. These durable plastic beads are perfect Glo Bug alternatives and can be used in any situation where you would fish an egg imitation, single egg or spawn sack. These beads are also used by walleye and bass anglers for spinner and lure building.

The rigging is a simple technique. The angler places a bead on the line or tippet, then attaches a hook (size 6 - 12 are recommended) to the line. The bead can either be fished free floating or "pegged" to the line with a round toothpick (not included) one to two inches above the hook. The lure is presented just like any other egg imitation, dead drifted alone, under a float or strike indicator. Use just enough weight to get the bead to the bottom, but not so much that the natural drift is compromised.

Troutbeads are made in the U.S.A.

What more do you need?

by M. W. Foreman -

If you want consistant 50+ fish days, buy yourself some trout beads. Glo Roe in 8mm for Fall and Winter trout that are in streams with salmon runs. The 6mm Glo Roe is perfect for Spring time or whenever brown trout and steelhead are spawning. That is it! Two sizes of one color. Place a hook or fly 4"-7" below the bead and hang on. Fishing IS catching when using trout beads.

Great product

by Avidangler -

These are a great product, its impressive that when conditions are tough these will outproduce other baits, including some live baits. When the waters normal or clear steel seem to love these beads. 8mm is my favorite size.

every trout fisherman should have!

by FISH ON! -

These trout beads really work great. The 6mm is almost identical to the real trout eggs. Just tie one an inch above a small hook and hold on! Kind of difficult to tie on because of the size but they work, the trout just suck this thing right up. very inexpensive, multiple colors for whatever condition you're fishing in.
