My first time posting. I'm new to the sport, been conventional fishing for over 30yrs. I have always been wanting to get into the sport of fly fishing and now I'm making it a point to. I live in the RGV so I mostly fish Port Mansfield south to SPI. I'm currently trying to absorb as much information as possible. Hopefully I can contribute soon to the discussions.
I saw your video on swamp monster. Chartreuse eyes are hard to find. I make mine by spraying bead chain in the back yard. I hang the beads from a coat hanger that is hanging on a tree limb. I spray them with this Krylon (R) spray paint. I get the Krylon (R) from Hobby Lobby (R) or Walmart (R). The color for chartreuse is "Ivy Leaf Gloss". I hang the beads from a coat hanger at one end with a twisty tie. Then what I do is spray them. It takes only 10 minutes to dry. Once dried I go back and look to see if it needs respraying. Again I wait 10 minutes, and if all looks good then I put the clear acrylic on it. The clear acrylic coats the paint and the paint won't come off. I will send you a picture of this. After 10 minutes it will be dry as well. The beads in the picture were originally black and I painted them a couple of times and they came out good.
