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
