  1. Do you also reccomend using AFF for shrimp eyes?
    Hos would you go about making them?
    Curently I am using CA and epoxy, or CA and CCG.

    • Hello Don.

      Yes, I use the AFF on shrimp eyes. Usually, I will string a black bead followed by an orange or red bead on 1.5 inch piece of 16lb hard mason mono. The beads fit sort of snug and I slide them up next to each other. I snip off one end of the mono flush with the black bead and dip the beads in AFF. I dip them deep enough for the AFF to cover the beads and a little bit of mono above them. It takes 2 dips, (with ample drying between dips) to get a thick finish. They work well. There is a photo of one of the eyes on the article titled “Aleene’s Fabric Fusion” in the Flies and Fly Tying section here on my website.
