Mounted on size 8 or size 10 Raptor Curve Shank hooks, these are a fantastic solution for zig rigs fishing up in the water column or even when surface fishing.

They are made from buoyant foam with flashes of colour underneath, with yellow, red, green and pearl options in each pack of four. The water boatmen are year-round bugs that are especially dominant during the spring and will mimic a hatch to entice passing carp.
