    A perfect addition to the fly. This item improved my catches of sea trout 100%. A recommended addition to the lure

    Realistic looking head without epoxy, CCG, or spun hair. Just super glue & it's done. What could be easier!

    nice but one problem - 3/20/2013

    They look great and easy to use but should ship with the darn eyes on them already.

    Thank you for the feedback regarding this product. The Fish Skulls come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors; for additional variety, the eyes are not affixed, allowing you to introduce yet another variable to the pattern. If, for this reason, you are not happy with the product, we will gladly exchange it or provide a refund. As always, we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee on everything

    great product, flimsy packaging - 4/2/2012
    By: from NE USA

    Great streamer head. Have used for tying many nice flies. ONLY ISSUE - and its not orvis' fault, but the manufacturer chooses to packages this in a this clear resealable poly film bag that DOES NOT HOLD up to more than 2 or 3 opens and closes. The sides seams ALWAYS split and heads fall out and get lost.

    No dumbell - 12/25/2011

    Much easier to use than dumbell eyes and adds more realistic look.

    These make tying big weighted streamers a breeze. Very easy to use, and look a lot better than a standard cone head.

    Great Features - 2/10/2011

    The FishSkull product line is one of the best innovations in fly tying in the last several years. They are very easy to use and produce weighted flies with a very professional appearance. I am anxious to see more patterns developed using these heads.
