A chance encounter with a fellow making jewelry a couple of days ago got me thinking. What he was doing might have useful fishing lure potential. I have always liked the real glass eyes on the old wooden lures. As soon as I saw these the bells were going off.
After a bit of chatting and I mentioned my interest in making fishing lures and the possibilities of just using the "slumped" glass rod sections as lure eyes. After a few odd looks, we all know what I mean, he warmed up to the idea and went on to explain in detail the process. Today in the mail I got a nice assortment of various sizes and colors of what he had on hand. I think they will make great eyes. Even better yet with the right colors.
