    Coming from you Charles I'll call it a compliment, see all a matter of perspective.

    The "roping chromers" bit is a gem I am probably going to carry with me for the rest of my life..

    Shouldn't I get a "like" for a compliment?

    I mispelled sensitive though. Weak on my part. I can't even claim I was drinking 'cuz I've been sick and not drinking.

    Go Sox,

    This Dustin Chromers character. And really, I think it is a character, is genius. It wouldn't surprise me if he has never used beads in his life. Just someone trying to yank some chains. If so, he obviously did a great job. And at the same time, being hilarious.

    Then again. I could be completely wrong. But, I think many of you fell for it.

    At least I got some great catch phrases to use next time I'm on the river.

    As with all holes, they can be made larger, best to start small and slowly work itto the right size.

    I suggest cutting a candy necklace and using the 'beads' from that. That way they can melt into the current and 'milk' a scent trail...

    I've never fished a bead by itself. However, I have put a bead on as part of an egg sucking or egg pooping leech. Can't tell you if the fish like the addition or not. But, the beads do have a bit of weight, so it is something to use when you need something more than nothing and less than dumb bells..

    Also. A smaller egg is perfect as a way to prop up materials in an intruder style. As opposed to a dubbing ball. Serves multiple purposes.
