If this has already been beat to death here forgive me.....
It seems, from what Ive been seeing in my research, that beads are what everyone's using? over egg patern's
As a dedicated fly fisherman I have a hard time using a plastic bead and a bare hook. from what I gather plastic beads aren't permitted in "fly fishing only" zones but have fly fisherman accepted plastic beads as a standard practice?
I mean no disrespect to anyone using them, just having a hard time understanding.
