Red Eyes
John Burke, Auburn, MI

I've been tying up some simple saltwater shrimp patterns and decided to fancy them up a bit with burnt mono eyes.

Going through my leader material, I came across a spool of Amnesia shooting line in bright red. I made a couple of these red eyes and tied them in. Really neat effect!

Give it a try. ~ JB, MI
