Casper Star-Tribune article on new "bead and hook" technique

Here's a link to the article John Gwinnup referenced in his talk at the April 15 club meeting on the use of a bead and hook to catch trout in on the North Platte in Wyoming:

As John said, there's considerable uncertainty in Wyoming and other states about the legality of the technique, which is sometimes perceived as a form of snagging but apparently results in lower fish mortality.
It's not clear whether it's legal in Colorado, but this is really an intriguing new bait, getting a lot of attention.  We'll see if we can come up with a definitive answer.  Meanwhile, check out, this website, where they claim you'll "learn that matching TroutBeads to the egg drifting in the rivers is the most effective egg fishing technique ever developed."
