Anyone ever use beads with their fly rod? I was planning in getting a center pin but I got a fly rod for Christmas but still like the bead idea. I was looking at the soft bead variety.

I think you are could, but would be defeating point of fishing a bead with a float.   Just fish steelhead flies and egg patterns

I had to look up center pinning.  

I don't see why you couldn't fish beads with a fly rod.  It basically amounts to another version of nymphing.  Frankly, I've done a lot of micro jigging dead drift style on a 7ft ultralight lately and have really enjoyed it.  The philosophy and the basics remain the same, imho...
