Ear Bugs

Building easy segmented fly bodies with cheap silicone earring stoppers.
Earring stoppers are soft silicone beads which slide onto the pins of earrings to keep them in place. They are very cheap (£2/1000 in the UK) and make great segmented bodies for nymphs and dry flies. Once coloured with marker pens the beads have a very natural looking translucency and can be combined with dubbing and other materials to make a wide range of imitations.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
