Its possible that it just makes the Bead Head (BH) Greenwells easier for the fish to locate. Roman Moser states that the roots of the Gold Head or Pearl Head flies lie in the Northern Italian area. At the turn of the century the fishermen of Piemont, Bergamo, Brescia and Friulia fished in their alpine rivers with a bead headed nymph for spin fishing. The beads came from the glass making area of Murano (Venice). This type of nymph was then used by Roman in 1978 when the Roman Moser bottom downstream technique was born as shown in the video "New ways with the caddises and new ways with mayflies". Because the flies were light made of glass Roman experimented with Cabela's spinner bodies made of brass, goldheads were born.
Nobody understood this until he published the making of that Gold Head in the German magazine "Fliegenfischer" January/March issue 1985. The article was titled: "New ways of fishing the caddis". He found out that when sedge flies were hatching, the Gold Head was most successfull, possibly because the bead resembled the air bubble thorax of the natural nymph. The beadhead is now used on many types of flies, beadhead nymphs and beadhead lure or beadhead streamers and this the Bead Head (BH) Greenwells.
