Foam with Closed Cells
The GVS Selected Foam is supplied as sheets in order to enable the making of Extended Bodies or Simple Bodies. Their density is suitable to make realistic bodies by highlighting the abdominal rings of the Flies, which remain swollen and thus they stand out. By cutting a band following the instructions you find on the webpage and using the GVS EBP supports, you will manage to create bodies of very Realistic Flies that shall succeed in coping with the challenges with the fish.
We recommend don't make an excessive traction with the tying thread during the construction sequences of bodies in Foam (rings abdominal and closing knot), as overstretch the thread may create cuts to foam and cause breakage of the bodies of flies.
Varied colours were selected to make bodies of Mayfly, Caddisfly, Stonefly, Midges and Terrestrial Flies; each Foam has its colours, the closest ones to such of Realistic Flies.
In order to make them as realistic as possible, bodies can be coloured or shaded with one of our Markers.
