Split Shot for Fly Eyes(Weights)

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

I ran out of dumbbell lead eyes and was looking for something to use without going to the tackle store.

 

I spied some unused split shot so tied two together on a piece of mono then tied them on to the hook shank. They seem to work, but I just wondered if anyone has tried this thing? :confused: C2

I have not used split shot but I have used tungsten beads. I saw some posts here where tyers did the same with glass beads. I use mono that is very close in diameter to the opening in the bead and use a lighter to melt each end to prevent the beads from sliding off along with some crazy glue. I flatten the mono between the beads with my needlenose pliers before tying them on. Now that you brought up the split shot I do have a container full of round unremoveable shot that I will use.
