    I picked some up recently to try and see if there was a practical way to peg these things... apparently a regular peg won't hold em' in place, so I need to come up with a different system so that I don't have to cut and re-tie every time I want to switch beads.... ideas?

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.

    I used them and they can catch fish, but not sure I like them much. You need to tread them on to mono loop or use a threader every time as there are no holes. You can not paint them with any thing that will stay on. My biggest fear is they remind me of those rubber worms and stuff they made back in the 60s- 70s that when your tackle box got hot in the sun they melted all over your other hooks and tackle. Not sure if they are the same but sure remind of a mess along time ago. I think people are putting way to much thought in to fish beads.
    O ya and I like the nail knot idea.

    I have used them a little bit. They work ok. I put a small tube through the middle of them so they are like a bead. Then I let it free slide with a nail knot 2" above the hook.

    I dip all my toothpicks in "SofTex" before the season starts and they work great with any beads I have ever used. Kind of puts a "rubbery" coat on them...

    Great Lakes Steelhead Co has a lot of great colors. I just checked their site but it doesn't seem to be working for me when I go their products section. www.glsteelheadco.com They are hard plastic beads though.
