They are ok for some water, but they pick up moss and other trash if its there. Makes a nice looking jig.

I have used them for a long time, but on flies. I think it's a lot of extra cost and time to tie in that is unneeded really. I mean if you really want pretty eyes just buy heads that have the eye cavity and glue the nice eyes in that!

Used them on bream jigs in deep water 15-25 feet with jigging pole and light line. Found them to work well. It will add flash with out a blade and in northern waters it work good on yellow perch. good luck

Yes I have and they make really neat jigs. I have found the jigs balance better, if using a jig hook, by tying the barbel outside the hook. You can also get some lead wire for cheap and use it to add weight on the hook shaft to balance out the weight so the jig lies horizontal. These ties I call a "flig" smile

Well heck, can't get adding pics to work! frown
