Dry flies can be really great for fishing with and this set has feathers that have a lifelike appearance. They are lightweight and imitate insects with bright colours which should tempt fish to bite. They have a stainless steel hook that is hidden under the tail and is extremely sharp. The hook tip is barbed so the fish cannot escape and so makes them easier to catch. The feathers are bound up with thread which is really tough and will not be easily bitten off by the fish and the hook will not rust. The flies come in a box where they are securely attached so it is easy to get them out.
