At a Glance: Salmon & Steelhead Beads
Beads are one of the most simple lures around, yet when it comes to spawning Salmon and Steelhead, they are one of the most effective. There are a number of theories as to why Salmon and Steelhead target eggs so aggressively. One is that they seek to destroy other fish’s eggs in order to preserve their own and give their young the best chance of surviving. While others say they eat the eggs due to their high protein, as fish eggs are one of the most protein-packed forages in the area and can be vital to keeping their energy levels up. Beads come in a wide variety of colors and can excel in both clear and darker waters. Beads are so effective that they allow the anglers to adapt to any environment and use a wide range of techniques, everything from fly fishing to float fishing. While simple in design and theory, beads are one of the top-performing baits to landing some trophy Salmon and Steelhead!
