Default Re: What weight dumbell eyes?

If you're casting with a 5 weight, I wouldn't suggest weighting flies with anything larger than the "Medium (1/30 oz)" or maybe, the "large (1/20 oz)" sized lead eyes. Remember that throwing heavy flies on light rods drastically increases your chances of getting nailed in the back of the head with the fly.
