    You could make bracelets at a girl scott jamboree


    Since you showed us your bead kit, I will do the same....

      For rainbows, I typically use 6mm when standing and working an area, 8mm when drifting, but vary from 5mm up to 10mm regularly. Standard orange/tangerine with various coatings of white works most of the time - as Drifter described.

      That said - beads are cheap and easy to carry. Why limit yourself to 6 options?

        Thanks, for the photo's & suggestions.
        Here is what I am thinking as far as colors:
        Nat. Roe---Dk. Roe---Tangerine---Orange---Glow Roe---Apricot---Oregon Cheese
        I will carry in both solid colors & mottled.
        Again, I just want to limit the bead colors, just like I do with flies. I used to carry all of those different fly patterns, and found myself just using a handful of the same flies, over & over! Now I just tie & carry more of, the ones that have been successful for me.
        How many bead colors or fly patterns, can you use, in a day of fishing?
        I think we all have our favorite colors/patterns, and I think we all build a confidence level, in what we use, if it proves seccessful!
        Again, thanks for the info, and I welcome any other suggestions.

            They look very similar to all the little round things that we kept finding in your boat the other week

                    Fishing is all about confidence anyway... that and a good presentation... and I suppose it helps if the fish are biting....
                    I believe in simplicity, too. While I'm on the water, I'll typically carry a small travel box o beads and a flybox with flesh and streamers and maybe a couple nymphs. Though, often I'll have more tackle back at the car, and an even greater arsenal back at the home. Fishing for me is both a hobby and a livlihood, so I have all sorts of gear... fly tackle, bait and spin, drift... even jig rods for ice fishing. It is a life-long study of technique, refinement, and pursuit. The catching is just a bonus.

                      Great point. I know if I am not comfy with my setup I will not catch fish....I have to like what Im using....My standby is 6mm peaches and cream bead. For some reason that beads out fishes all my others at least 6-1. I have enough beads to choke a horse....What do I use.....peaches and cream and strawberries and cream 80% of the time.....My wife well she can put on a black freaking marble....never mend her line.....fish with 4 feet of leading in 10 feet of water and still catch fish....Must be the boobies

                            Exactly my point!
                            This is why, I try to limit, my selection to the patterns or colors that you feel confident in, and will use the majority of the time.

                              For trout I have found that the basic 6 colors or so that have been mentioned will be sufficient but while steelhead fishing I have drifted color after color past where I knew fish were until I hit on the right size/color for a takedown.

                              Check out AFFG as they have a sale on some pretty good colors right now. At $1.75 a pop you can probably expand your box by a bit.

                              Something that I have also found very useful is a bead specific box that fits in a wader pocket or vest. This has probably 8 different compartments for beads and room for 2 different sizes of hooks, and split shot. This has been indispensable to me while beading as it keeps everything together. This is the one I use.

                              Also don't forget your "peg-its". I know there are a number of different schools of thought on the best way to peg your bead but these are my favorite, much less visable and easier to work with than toothpicks.
