A quicker and kinda simple more costly way to add lifelike eyes is a skull 💀 or helmet product shown below.  These are available in 3-4 sizes, are clear plastic, and have flat sides with a nice raised edge around the eye 👁 pockets.

I,m trying to do this without doing photo bucket.  So short segments may work.
    The eyes 👀 can be super glued on and recoated over w clear nail polish 💅.   If you want to you can also paint the head .    Large flys can be tied on size 4/0-6/0 and the skull 💀 slipped over the hook eye,   Or slipped on to a tube fly.....🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️
     These raised plastic eyes are good,   Butt many other ones can be used.    It takes a little planning with the fish skull to finish the color and size to accept the clear head,  butt the fly now has a flat spot to put a flat eye 👁.    Durable and life like! 🐠🚣‍♀️🐳

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.
