Hemingway’s Realistic Mayfly Wings Gray
Hemingway’s Realistic Mayfly Wings are very realistic imitation of real mayfly wings in their dun (subimago) stage, when their wings are lightly-colored. These wings are extra easy to work with – they are preshaped and precut, all ready to use! Simply take them off the backing sheet and tie on. No cutting or shaping required. The transparency and the details on these wings mimic the real wing of a mayfly so well that fooling a fish is going to be a breeze. Premium quality, made to withstand the elements – they are waterproof and UV resistant, so no additional prep work is needed. They are extra durable and can survive many fish, but are also made of very flexible material so they are easy to bend and manipulate when tying. The softness and flexibility of the material make them easily gulped by the fish. These wings are best complemented with Hemingway’s Mayfly Tube Bodies – you get a perfect realistic looking fly in a few easy steps.
