    extended body

Extended bodies we are tying using mainly foams, but sometimes from other materials. To tie the extended body fast we have to use needle, can be straight sewing needle or special models made for fly tying like from the J:son Detached Body set.

 
 
The most important advantage of the extended bodies is their high buoyancy, they are soft, looks natural because of
 
 
clearly visible segmentation and can be painted.
