Default Glass and Epoxy...Killer Combo

I've been experimenting with 2-part epoxy on some fly patterns for a while now. On some of the patterns, I slide glass beads on the hook and then cover with epoxy to get a nice baitfish pattern. I add oversize 3-D eyes before applying the epoxy to really give them a small fish bug eye appearance.

These have worked extremely well in size 10 on largemouth bass and trout. I've recently tied some on stainless steel hooks and will try them in saltwater soon.

The glass beads give it the appearance of having scales and do a great job of reflecting the light.

The bulbous shape at the head is the result of the stick-on 3-D eyes.
