    The quality of these prepainted is of very low quality and are useless for tying flies.The paint job on these eyes make the eyes look squint.

    These eyes work great for tying clouser patterns. They provide enough weight to keep the the hook point up without making the fly overly heavy and hard to cast. I also like that the eyes are smooth, not like the sharp edges on recessed nickel eyes, which is especially nice when the fly eyes smack your ear during the forward cast on a windy day.

    I used these on some "Minnie Clausen" minnows for bluegill in the local lake. they do the job better than the bead eyes I was using. better sink rate. (make sure to use some thing to hold the small ones!!)

    Greatest innovation in fly tying. Quick and easy to use giving realistic eyes and weight at the same time. Makes tying good looking clousers a cinch

    Prepainte Fly Eyes - 3/4/2012

    Really like fly eyes from Orvis, as they are consistant in their painting. Other suppliers have inconsistant painting on their barbell eyes. These eyes are consistant in the size also.
