Dumbbell eyes on thin wire hoook

654 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?

"Parachute wraps", between the dumbbell eyes & the hook shank, around the previously made figure 8 wraps, plus some UV cure/Super Glue should do it.
