I like those. A lot!

What are you using for the head material? What's your target? How do they swim?
For the head I’m using two different types of predator dubbing when I get back to the house I can look at the brands I know one comes from the fly tyers dungeon But the other one I can’t recall where I got it from. I’m actually heading to Lake Tapps I would like to try to see my first tiger musky. Since these are my first ties like this I will have to see how the swim later today

Back at home.. I think the flies swam pretty good but no fish came up to look at them. Only thing I would change is on the green/yellow fly... I may have put a little to much yellow/gold flash. They have some awesome “jerk bait” action
nice. just add to your box, I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss something with a ton of flash...some days....

I'm curious, do you just glue the eyes to the head material or ultimately to the hook shank?

Both. I've found that if you use a gel type glue (something with a higher viscosity) it binds to both the material and shank. Drop a little on the fly, place the eyes, lightly press.

Do this on the other side and many times the glue will run through to the other eye binding everything together.

If you want to get crazy, you can then add a little UV resin to the eyes to really mold everything together
