clouser painted dumbbells

While I'm still learning clousers...another question....does anyone know where to get dumbbells in bulk? Or do I have to continue to pay $5 for 10 dumbells?? I like the tiny sized ones with "painted eyes"....yellow or white.

Thanks, Doug Burgess

Doug, Cabella's has them for 2.99 for 10 eyes. When you think about it they are expensive, .30c per fly. I am trying to find a source for bulk.

RE:clouser painted dumbbells

Doug,

I have been buying the plain eyes. I use model Testors paint and paint them myself. I stick a whole bag of them (one side)in a sheet of sytrofoam and paint the iris with a Q-Tip and let them dry. I then used a toothpick and put a drop on for the pupil. After they dry do the other side. It's a little time consuming but it works.

After I make the fly I the coat the eyes with nail polish hardener. I had my wife pick that up for me.
I'm sure someone out here has a better method.
