New Double Pupil Lead Eyes from Hareline

I know, some of our readers are begging for mercy, because three posts on Clouser Eyes is nearly too much fun to endure.

True enough, but these Double Pupil Lead Eyes from Hareline are impressive critters and many of our readers who obsess over the details of their flies will want to explore these beauties in 8 colors and 4 sizes!

Here is our standard king salmon Clouser tied with the but one of the 32 possible color/size options for these nice new eyes.

Kindly note: the finish on these eyes and the intricate paint/enamel work is impressive, the nicest eyes I have ever seen on a heavy lead base.  From x-small to large, these babies will find a home on my flies for this and successive seasons.

Have fun, fellow fly tyers; we now have more options to ponder when tying our flies.

Post Script: sorry to repeat, but the finish and detail work on these eyes is absolutely amazing, and I am not going to be satisfied with my old eyes after seeing these and fishing them.
