Jonny,,,Very nice looking flies! No doubt the pike will like them too!!!

Just curious if you have ever tried using the large doll "wiggle-eyes / googly- eyes". I tie several hundred pike flies a year (custom orders as well as for my own use) and use the doll eyes on probably 90% of my pike flies now. The white with black pupil shows up well,,, and while I don't have hard evidence,,, I do feel the doll eyes actually outfish the prismatic 3D eyes as the wiggly eyes add a rattle to the fly.
