They haven't really caught on in my neck of the woods yet, some of my fellow steelheaders are wondering what I'm doing with sooo many beads I only found out about them by lurking on the west coast steelheading sites (thanks guys!).

Alternatively, you can snip a tiny bit off the sides of the hole in plastic beads. This lets you get the bead around the hook bend with a crushed barb. Here's a pic of 6mm beads on #6 and #8 Mustad 9672's (it looks like roe eh )

A guy at the local fly shop recommended them to me, I bought some, but never used em cause I figured the fish would be likely to spit them before I detected the strike.
