I never had fished a bead head until yesterday but Ive grown tired of "fishing" and decided I'd like to "catch fish". Figured out its a lot more fun.
yeah there is no doubt that nymphs probably catch more and larger fish, however, I can not pass up the simple dry fly. I got to make myself fish more nymphs this year. I am planning a trip to the mountains where I plan on not even carrying one dry fly. This is the only way I will ever learn to fish this way.
