Hi all. Does anyone know if they still make glass eyes for fishing lures or where a person can purchase any? I am trying my luck at making my own wooden lures and I would like to use glass eyes but I am having a hard time finding them. Thanks for any help.

they're not the easiest find, most are NOS. there are a few who still make em though.

Try giving member "funny farm" a private message, he can usually dig these up.

If not try larry's board over at:

I see folks offering them there occasionally.

Doll eyes.
Taxidemy eyes.
Can be had in glass very readily.

Go to taxidermy.net/suppliers/eyes.html
There are several suppliers listed there.
They are a little to spendy for my budget, but I found a local source for plastic eyes that are pretty nice looking. A local fly shop in Rapid City SD carries them in about 5 or 6 colors and sizes of 4.5, 6, and 7.5 mm for 1.80 for a package of 18 eyes. The place is called Dakota Angler and Outfitter. Their phone # is 605-341-2450. Hope this helps. I wish I could have posted a link to the first place, but I'm a computer idjit. Dale

I was just surfing through ebay, and stumbled across somebody that has a lot of glass eyes for sale.The seller goes by the name jncshop. I stumbled across his listings while looking at decoys in the hunting section. The prices are real reasonable considering what I've seen glass eyes selling for in the past. Hope this helps. Dale
