You can make a decent replica of the old-style CCBCo. eyes like this:
Make an eye socket by drilling a shallow hole.
Drill a tiny hole in the bottom of the eye socket.
Paint the heads on some plastic head straightpins.
Push a cutoff straightpin into the tiny hole.
Fill the eye socket with 5 minute epoxy glue.
Rotate the lure for a few minutes until the glue sets up.
