    Love Orvis! Bought lots of tying materials and really like the painted eyes they have. I also recently purchased new waders and a jacket for an Alaska trip, they work great. We caught lots of Salmon on flies I tied with Orvis material,

    Using Orvis safes me from making a 50 mile roundtrip from my home to Short Pump to the retail store. Orvis is very quick to ship and the packages typically arrive quickly from their Roanoke, VA center. I also like the fact that they carry a wide inventory too. In this case, painted lead eyes, there are many other sources but none beat Orvis for convenience.

    My son was coming for a visit. Had built an 8wt salt water rod for him and wanted to equip him with a few basic salt water flies, deceivers, Clousers, sand ells. Ran out of eyes. Orvis shipped them to me in one day from Roanoke. Mission accomplished! Since recuperating from office surgery, could not drive to Short Pump.

    Prepainted Dumb Bell Eyes - 2/11/2015
    By: from Scotland

    The quality of these prepainted is of very low quality and are useless for tying flies.The paint job on these eyes make the eyes look squint.

    These eyes work great for tying clouser patterns. They provide enough weight to keep the the hook point up without making the fly overly heavy and hard to cast. I also like that the eyes are smooth, not like the sharp edges on recessed nickel eyes, which is especially nice when the fly eyes smack your ear during the forward cast on a windy day.

    best eyes ever! - 3/21/2014
    By: from Bradenton, Fl

    I used these on some "Minnie Clausen" minnows for bluegill in the local lake. they do the job better than the bead eyes I was using. better sink rate. (make sure to use some thing to hold the small ones!!)
