Rainy's Foam Booby Round Eyes- Perfect for hand-painted eyes or as is! The first references I can find about Booby flies is from English magazines published about 35 years ago. Back then they were called Booby nymphs, and you still see this fly called Booby nymph in today's UK magazines. The name Booby 'nymph' reveals the flies origins. English lake fishers observed that many emerging insects used a bubble of air to move from the lake bed and weeds to the surface. This bubble of air held the insect in the surface film while it changed from its nymph form into a flying insect. Nymphs with bubbles of foam attached to the head became a proven fish taker and the rest is history. 6 per package.
