Dumbbell eyes on thin wire hoook

653 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Nick Clayton
I am having trouble keeping dumbbell eyes from spinning on a thin wire hook. With a thicker nymph hook my figure 8’s, sinching it down and some super glue works great.

Super frustrating and looking for some ideas or tricks of the trade to keep em from spinning?

Establish a solid thread base that these eyes rest on...and I would think your figure 8th's and glue should keep it there.
