I get this question all the time: “how to I attach a loop eye to an eyeless hook? Is there a video showing it?” Every single time, I tell myself I’m going to make a simple video about it, but the idea soon falls victim to the same fate as new years resolutions. The topic came up again recently and it reminded me that this has been on my to-do list a long time. Now, instead of re-explaining it every time, I can just reference this video. You might find it useful too if you get the same kinds of questions from people interested in tying on eyeless hooks. Please note that I will not be tying a full fly--I’m only briefly showing how to attach the loop. After that, you can simply tie the rest of your fly as you normally would. I hope you find this helpful!
