Depends, I guess, on how bad you want to catch a fish. I remember all kinds of "dirty" little tricks like that. Pinning beads on the leader ahead of the fly is not uncommon in Alaska. But then consider the situation. A good majority of those "fly fishers" have never fly fished before. They know or care nothing of ethics, they just want to catch some Salmon. They bring those techniques home with them & justify them because "that's what the guides showed us in Alaska" It never occurs to them the guides are in it for the money (tips) & hope they all return next year as naive as last year.
I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.
