Bead Chain Eyes- DIY

 

A lot of the time when I'm fishing Clouser styled flies I try to tie them in different weights. For the lighter one I use bead-chain for the eyes. Most fly shops have brass and silver available. I find it to be tedious to paint specific colors. Here's a quick solution.

Go to your local Lowe's Warehouse or similar store. Go to the lighting area and look for bead-chain pulls that are colored for certain interior themes. I have found deep red, pewter, black, and several more colors. hold up well and keep there color.
