Don't be drawing me into this just because I have a limp.
Not limp, just have one.
In AK (tr to come next week) the joint fishes a lot of beads. That's the way they do it. I tried it for about 15 minutes. After I'd caught a dozen fish (in the 15 minutes), I quit for the day and went exploring. I don't want fishing to be that easy. Char behind salmon reds. Gobbling.
That said, I got talking to a guy in a western fly shop about it. He was really down on beads, but fine with glo bugs. He said, You don't tie a bead. Al least you have to tie a glo bug.
I said, How many glo bugs do you sell? He said, A lot.
The guides in AK said the glo bugs work fine, they just get taken deeper, and do a lot more damage to the fish. Beads were a lot easier to deal with with their clients, nearly always ending p with a hook-up on the outside of the fishes mouth, not damaging gills and easily removed. If people are catching 50 to 100 fish in a day, that actually makes sense to me.
And if you are counting tying glo bugs as part of your skill set, I think tying your wading boots should be included too.
I prefer neither, but I'm not going to condemn either.
