We are really having some great weather this week. Some of you are taking advantage of this warm weather and getting out there and catching some fish. A few of us in the shop have also taken advantage of the warm weather. Its tough to not try and wet a line in weather like this after being cooped up all winter. Jimmy and Rollin got out earlier this week and I will be getting out on Sat. Here is a photo from Jimmy’s trip yesterday on the Big Lost.
We finally got our shipment of Trout Beads. Many people have found success fishing these beads in Alaska, and on the Salmon river for Steelhead. Trout beads imitate fish roe. Fish them below a indicator with some splitshot. Most people peg the bead about 3 inches above a hook. We have examples at the shop of different methods for fishing these beads. Also they make great beads for tying Egg Sucking Leeches. We have a large assortment of colors and sizes.
