Targeting steelhead in the Fall behind the "egg guys" fishing for salmon is an effective technique if done correctly.


If this situation presents itself selecting the correct color bead to "match the hatch" can be all the difference. Taffy is the color that a red cured egg turns after contact with water for more than 24 hours.

Use this bead for picky steelhead during this time of the year when presenting the correct color can bring you from zero to hero!


Natural Beads (formerly known as Bait Ballz) is a fishing product created by the need to provide anglers with a method of fishing that is very effective but also in compliance with fishing regulations that will continue to ensure our fisheries success. Used in any water conditions will provide anglers with a distinct advantage over all similar products in this category.

Foresight into bait restrictions called for a product which would replace eggs, the most natural source of food or territorial aggression/protection bites. The company was founded by Lael Paul Johnson “LPJ” a Pacific Northwest Guide who saw a need to develop a better bead than what was available on the market. That quest led to the development of Natural Beads in 2013 and the start of #NOBAITNOPROB. Over four years of product development and testing have gone into the product seen today. Ongoing research is allowing anglers to push the limits of their fishing pursuits with less worry of fish ingesting broken parts.

Durability and the “BOUNCE” are the main features allowing continual use of this product for years. Unlike hard beads, which break off when wedged in-between river rock bottoms, Natural Beads pull through. The “BOUNCE” will allow you to fish closer to where most fish reside. If incidentally thrown onto shore while attempting to make the perfect cast, Natural Beads bounce back into the water. The texture of the product is firm and resists tearing when struck. This semi-soft bead, paired with a loop knot, make fish hold on long enough for proper hook placement.

Today, Natural Beads keeps a close eye on fisheries conservation which consequently has inspired product design and development.
