mate, Muz Wilson, a
world-renowned tyer and fly fisher from Australia
(be sure to watch for the link to his fantastic new website on our home
page) has been hammering me to create a set of Mayfly Body cutters to
use for his Messy Dun.

After numerous iterations, I have designed a very versatile set of
cutters. You can use the cutters to make extended bodies for
traditional patterns or use them to make
complete mayfly bodies
(including the head!) if you desire.
Sized to match our
Mayfly Wing cutters, you can use them with our
River Foam® brand Wing
Sheet Material to tie incredibly realistic mayflies, even finely-ribbed
foam Trico spinners down to size 20!
Use combinations of our 2mm, 1mm and 0.5mm foam to create beautiful,
two-toned bodies. No floatant needed!
Amaze your fly tying
friends or, more importantly, fool those fussy trout Down Under! Just
Mayfly Foam Body Cutters..........$6.75
One small cutting pad included with each individual cutter purchased
Don't forget materials for tying.....

We use River Foam® wing sheet
material for most of our mayfly wings, but River Wing® material works
great too. Just be sure to add floatant to the wings, when you use
River Wing® material; it doesn't float like River Foam® material does.
