Eye can see the difference, can the fish?

Well, I can see the difference but will the fish? I’ve bought a couple of job lots of fishing gear from eBay, much of it secondhand so inevitably with few pieces with signs of wear.

Quite a number of lures (available in various natural and unnatural colour schemes) have eyes missing. Maybe it could make them much less attractive to a predator who has only moments to decide whether it is a desirable meal.

A hunt on Amazon found me 348 eyes with a ‘free’ set of tweezers for a fiver (3D no less), super glue I already had. Since the eyes cost me only marginally more than one lure I figured it was worth a go. Have I made a rod for my own back.
