Real Eel ?

Juro, I have tied a couple of your real eels and they look pretty good. I would like to know what size dumbell you use for the eyes. For example a 7/32 for a 6 inch eel, a 3/16 for a 4 inch eel. That sort of thing.

Also, you mention that these cast better than a clouser due to the weight to materials ratio. The only difference I see is that the body is not wrapped down, is there something else that I am missing.

Finally, do these need epoxy or not.

Thanks
Brad
