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.
