Dumbbell eyes on thin wire hoook

652 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?

I like to build a thread bump then put some glue on top of that before placing the eyes on. Then take take a bunch of wraps including the helicopter wraps Ron mentions, then more glue, then the rest of the wraps and more glue on top. I hate hate hate eyeballs that move
