I'm wrapping a bit of lead wire behind the bead head and trying to get a more balanced fly so they don't sink vertically, but I don't want to get so much weight that the fly doesn't suspend after being stripped. I prefer bead head buggers cause I don't like waiting for an unweighted bugger to sink before starting a strip retrieve.
I recently tied some fly/jigs using slotted tungsten beads and jig hooks (black n yellow). No need to add lead wire with the tungsten bead.
Buggers without the bead head seem good for for use in shallow water or for fishing over grass beds.
I use all types of weight - lead wire, bead head, bead chain, and dumbell.
My favorite size is a #10 -2x strong 3x long streamer hook for crappie and pan fish, but I use larger #8 or #6 hooks for bass.
