Eyes of all kinds - tie them better
Bulging eyes... again By Martin Joergensen
Pearls and copper thread One problem with the metal bead chain eyes is that they are heavy. This can be a problem in two ways: either they are just too heavy -- you want a light fly -- or their weight is to far foward on the fly making it dive. If you want eyes, but a fly that doesn't weigh in the wrong places, use plastic pearls in stead.
