    After looking at a lot of patterns and real bugs it seems to be more confusing than ever as to what color to make dragon nymph eyes. Your thoughts please.

    Golden Trout-

    I believe that the most common dragonfly nymph eye colors are black or brown, and that most commercially tied dragonfly nymph patterns probably have red eyes. ;)
