Virtual Nymph VN Stonefly Wing Buds. These Stonefly Wing Buds have been designed by Paul Whillock & Steve Thornton. Paul and Steve are two of the better known realistic fly tyers in the world today. Stoneflies can be tied in many ways but you can save time and create a more effective pattern by adding these wing buds. Virtual Nymph Stonefly Wing Buds are easy to use; simply cut out a pair of wing buds with your scissors. Virtual Nymph Stonefly Wing Buds are made with a tough water proof polymer, and they can be colored to Match the Hatch with permanent marker pens. Sealing the wing bud with a matte varnish or glue will help the general aesthetics and also protect them for longer use.
