    Default I was playing with some old lure making supplies today

    I think this one might be a keeper

    That's the morning after dragon fly isn't it? I think the first fish I caught last years was on a nymph Sirrom gave me with red eyes similar to that. The fish was a crappie I believe.

    It does kind of remind me of a former co-worker who often showed up looking kind of green with bright red eyes. Everyone tried to avoid him until at least noon. I hope the fish don't feel the same way!

    actually very simple. Just the marabou from the tail twisted and wrapped forward and around the eyes with a very fine wire rib counter wrapped for strength. The eyes are on a piece of paper clip with the ends turned up.
