Description

Fly tying beads have evolved! The heads of most natural stonefly species typically have the same distinctive, flat profile that is almost triangular in shape. The large head is broad at the back where it meets the thorax and has with a long flat nose that tapers to the front. Stoneflies typically have prominent eyes situated at the rear of the head. This is a profile that is impossible to replicate with standard beads or cone heads but easy to incorporate into your fly with this product. 15 heads per package. See Other Details for recommended hook sizes.

Very Life-like

Reviewer: from Belgrade, MT.

Good product that adds realism to any stonefly pattern. Quality material. Great for a rubberlegs pattern!

Easy to use

Reviewer: from Springville, UT.

These are simple to use and give standard bead head stonefly nymph patterns a new kick. I like to use some lead or lead free wire wraps behind the heads to help seat the head just like any other bead head nymph fly pattern, but these beads make my stoneflies nymphs look more like the real thing! I'm giving it a 4 star review because the price point is a little high given the quantity of heads per package in my opinion. In addition to the high price point, I would like to see matte/mottled colors for these since the real insects are not shiny... At least not the ones I've seen. Overall, I am satisfied with them.
