    Check the link I provided. The eyes are pre-printed onto the shellbacks. Following the directions on the vid (at least on that point!), I put a dab of medium thickness UV cement onto the eyespot and hit that with a UV light. It's surprising how much it makes the eye stand out.

Tie down the shell and you're done. Takes about 5 minutes if I stop to for a few sips of coffee in the middle.

    Here's what you get doing it my way:

    Been using them on a visit to Florida this winter. They should be illegal! :topjob:
    Sure look great but yeah, 23 minutes per fly seems a bit much just to possibly loose one on the first big fish. Yours look fantastic too...!!!

    No I haven't. I think I would go through a whole lot of material to get just one. [emoji6]
