Default Wing Cutters

In my research for wing materials (another thread), I ran across the "wing cutters" and synthetic wing foams......I must say that I'm intrigued by this tool.

The caddis imitation displayed on the web-page was remarkably lifelike. It appears that this method is faster and produces a more realistic fly.

Are they worth the expense or just a useless tool designed to hook the fisherman???

Comments appreciated.

Default Re: Wing Cutters

I think they're more expense and fuss than they're worth, but consider the source. I also think tying parachutes and lots of other sorts of dry mayflies is more of a pain than its worth. An I have better luck on emerger patterns anyway.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
