Realistic Insect Legs 3D
Realistic Insect Legs 3D are going to make your flies come alive, they have the looks of the real insect legs and they float on the water just like real ones. This is a truly unique fly tying product – these legs come ready-made, they are easy to tie, and make really effective flies as they add that final touch to your patterns. Realistic Insect Legs 3D are a one-piece, flexible set of 3 pairs of thin, light legs that can be universally used for an almost limitless number of fly patterns. What makes these legs so special is that they are made in 3 dimensions – the legs are bent the same way real insect legs are. As they are made of light, foam-like material, they float on the water, thus making them ideal for combination with both, foam and traditional fly tying materials. The material is of high quality making them durable and sturdy. The added layer of silicone gives them extra flexibility, further enhancing the real feel of these materials. Using these legs is super easy as you simply tie them to your pattern. No other prep work is needed. These legs can be used in countless ways to create various terrestrial fly patterns: ants, bees, wasps, bumblebees, bottle flies, house flies, cicadas…They can also be an interesting option for some of the dry aquatic species, like dry stoneflies, caddis, etc.
Realistic Insect Legs 3D come in five great colors to match almost any fly pattern: Black, Brown, Tan, Yellow, and Gray, and four different sizes: Extra Small, Small, Medium, and Large. Extra Small is a good choice for hook sizes #12-14, Small would be good with hooks #10-12, Medium for hooks #8-10, and Large for hooks #6-8. To match them with the Realistic Extended Mayfly Bodies use XS for hooks #14 and #16, and Small for #10 and #12.
(Please note that due to many different types and models of hooks, these hook size recommendations are just rough estimates.)
6 sets of legs per box.
