I tried some regular, non-slotted beads on a jig hook and immediately realized the benefit of the slot. It leaves a little hook eye "stem" above the bead. Even with my high level of non conformist tolerance, it just looked weird. I gave them all to 2fly and told him they were special flies from Slovakia...
Good point, Scott. If the bugs float however the current takes them, then it probably doesn't matter if flies/patterns float upright. I also see what you mean about the non-slotted beads. I'm slowly accumulating supplies for tying and thought I'd try some non-slotted ones. I was noticing a gap between the bead and the end the pattern that was hard to fill. So, I guess it's time to order more slotted beads.
