Thread: Sequence - alternative cheap eyes

    Default Sequins - alternative cheap eyes

    A visit to your local material or dress making shop will open further alternative options for fly tying. Sequins are available in a variety of colours and sizes. For a few bucks (R4.00 to R6.00), you will have hundreds of sequins. Sequins are dish shaped with facets which reflect light, it glitters and shines. Glue it on your fly (bowl side to the fly) and apply a spot of paint or nail polish for the pupil. For permanence, apply a coat of epoxy over the sequins. Other benefits are that it hardly adds any weight to your fly.

    More good stuff, Wiets!

    P.S. I'd like to see the clothes you wear? Shades of late '60's San Francisco?
