Magic Body Quills
Magic Body Quills is a great material for tying quill bodies and abdomens that look real. These are a great alternative to natural materials – easy to use and make tying segmented bodies super fast. The printing on these strips is very authentic, when wrapped, it mimics the natural ribs on an insect body. They are also transparent, so the color of the underbody shows through. This makes the color of your pattern more gradient and gives your fly an extra dimension.
The strips are self-adhesive, simply peel off and wrap around the fly body. You can top it off with a thin coat of UV varnish to give it that extra touch and create a translucent, shiny, 3D appearance.
These Magic Body Quills are great for tying buzzers and nymphs, but also can be used for dries, spiders, etc.
Magic Body Quills come in three sizes, Small having the thinnest ‘ribbing’ line, perfect for small, fine flies, Medium – great for most applications, and Large having the thickest ‘rib’ for larger flies, or large segments.
Each strip is about 10 cm (about 4”) long.
