eyes or no eyes?

Thats a question flyfisherman have been asking for a long time,some people favor jungle cock and swear nothing works better.We all have our favorites and preference over one style or another.I think alot has to do with what we think looks good over what the fish likes.You can always try what the man from stripermoon states: let the fish decide,fish 2 or 3 flies at a time they will let you know what they like.How many times have you had a fly that caught fish even after the eyes were ripped off?Fly shape,size,color and action are more important than eye color in my opinion.If a bait fish was injuried and lost an eye and a striper attacked from the side without the eye would he suddenly refuse to take it because it had no eye?
