Thumbs up Lead ceramic nymphs from across the pond

I bought these nymphs on e bay France from mouches01.They really look outstanding,theyre lead moulded and hand painted with ceramic paint.The range of weights is between 0,24g and 1,30g.David(mouches01) is a dental prothesist and a keen flyfisherman and he did a great job on these nymphs.I havent tested them yet but should do it soon. Here are a few pics and a link to get more details. 1 x Mouche de peche : nymphe mosca fliegen tying canne - eBay (item 120550529261 end time Apr-09-10 08:46:23 PDT)

Watch out for the new lead laws where it is forbidden. I had the site favorited but long gone. New Hampshire it is a no no with Ma following suite the first of 2012. Again check your state laws.

In addition to the lead-free laws, check the laws in the specific area you plan to fish for other requirements. The lead-ceramic flies would not be legal flies in the Missouri trophy trout streams. In those streams a fly must have fur, feather or material permanently attached to a single hook. The all ceramic finish would not qualify.

That being said - they look really realistic, and will probably catch a lot of fish!

In Pennsylvania a "fly" is "constructed of natural or synthethic materials, so long as all flies are constructed in a normal fashion on a single hook with components wound on or about the hook. Anything other than these items is prohibited." Molded eggs are also excluded from use on flyfishing only water.
PA regs don't mention the use of lead, but I've been using lead substitute for several years now.

Having said that, my biggest concern would be hitting the rod with one of those buggers. I'd cast one with an ultralight spinning rod if I still used that sort of gear, however.

My concern would be hitting myself in the back of the head.

But those are some great looking flys. Look forward to hearing how they work out.

They look very nice...I don't think I'D have the patience to paint them...They would also be illegal in any of our National Parks where lead has been banned.

They look close to the underwater pictures of the real thing. Nice. I'll bet the Doc has had good trips with them.
