Do you love big bluegill?
I'm curious, does anyone buy/use colored beads for heads on flies? I never have and I'm wondering if they'd be a benefit to my pan fish flies.
I think Dick Tabbert does. I've got brass and black beads. I might start doing ice flies with painted tungsten beads, but those are NOT cheap.
I use both metal and glass beads on a lot of nymph patterns...reds and green mostly.
I see painted tungsten and brass beads, but I've never ordered any of them.
