The Fish-Skull Fish-Mask is an ultra-lightweight Fish-Skull designed for tying weightless streamers that suspend in the water column. It has a realistic baitfish head profile that includes recessed eye sockets that secure and protect the fish eyes. Molded from a crystal clear, fluoro-epoxy material, the Fish-Mask takes on the colors of the body materials used on the fly, and also can be colored with Copic markers.

This product is great for those of us who are epoxy challenged. You avoid the mess while creating a perfect head on your bait fish patterns every time. Eyes tend to stay on longer as well since they are in a grove on the fish mask. First time users of the fish mask may have to learn how much material it takes to fill out whatever size mask they are using but once they figure it out they can tie up some very good looking durable bait fish flies.
I love using these for baitfish immitations. The sizing can be a bit weird though. I have bought the 7mm and the 5mm and there is a BIG difference between the two. The 7mm makes flies in the 3-4 inch range while the 5mm makes flies in the 2 inch (or less) range. I use smaller hooks than suggested, for the 5mm I use size 8 and for the 7mm I use size 4, they seem better proportioned for these sizes.
Takes markers well I just use colored sharpies on it and they look great. Would recommend and will buy again.
These things are awesome! Easy to use and make a perfect baitfish head every time, just add your choice of stick on eyes and a little UV resin to hold the eyes on and you're done. Excellent product!
