Fish-Skull® Living Eyes™
Included in a corresponding size and color, these ultra-realistic eyes act as an important trigger for predatory game fish.
Distributes most of the head’s weight to the bottom of the streamer (like a dumbbell) ensuring it will swim in the correct position. This also allows you to tie with the hook facing either down or up.
Top and bottom slots
Allow vertical freedom of movement for the tying materials so you can tie broader profile streamers and get more natural action from the materials.

Note: Baitfish Heads have been sized using standard-length streamer hooks as a reference point. However, due to the wide variance in hook sizes and shapes found between the different hook manufacturers, this only provides general guidance to the hook sizes suitable for each size head. We suggest you experiment to find the optimum hook for the particular streamer pattern you wish to tie.
