Beads

Just a question of how far a bead should be pegged above the eye of the hook, in inches? I know people have different preferences.

Everyone has their preference, but the standard that I go with is 2" above the hook eye. That seems to be the best location that I have found. I have tried from 1-3" and the 2" has consistently given me the most hookups, and I have never had a fish get the hook down the throat with this setting.

Thanks for the input. I had been pegging them 1" to 1 1/2" above the hook eye.
