We are only allowed to use single egg rigs.

 

Question...Do you salmon fishers use this kinda setup, plastic  bead rigs, with spin tackle also.   Seems like with the double split shot and indicator that slides up and down stopping at the tippet ring it could be cast at least with an ultralite.  The object is to roll on the bottom in gravel areas.  Do you use the fiber/yarn egg patterns just as well on the flyrod?

Mark, Do you have any fly only water in your turf?  And would a pegged bead be allowed on the fly rod there.  The "fad" seems to have past here with the trout anglers but many Atlantic salmon fishermen still consider it flossing and not sporting.

My first attempts...copied from Whitlock’s but plastic bead substituted for yarn eggs.  Kanapp commented some white marabou for the milt would help...Thinking about adding a little behind the front beads...
