bug tying tips(3)

making a sinking sub bug

1 , first of all you must tie in some dumbell eyes what i do is wait till i have only space for 1 or 2 wraps of deerhair then ill tie the dumbell eyes in there so when youve finished it will look like the picture below once trimed , size of dumbell depends on how fast you want it to sink the larger the dumbell the faster the sink rate  

 

2 , what you need to do now is mix up a small amount of epoxy and drop this into the eye sockets until its full to overflowing this will also give you extra weight , ive found the best epoxy by far is z poxy for this

 

3 , all that remains to do is stick on an eye like the picture below i do this just as the epoxy is getting tacky that way you can still adjust the eye if needed and it will dry in that position without slipping
