Marcus just to save you a little bit of time when tying bombers don't bother with the spiral hackle as all the guides at Rynda cut it off so that the fly sits in the surface layer of the water rather than on it. I think this is so it makes more of a wake and it doesn't get pushed out of the way when the fish rise due to the resistance of the surface film.
Some of the hooks used in carp fishing are very good for tying nymphs and shrimps, just have a look next time you are in a shop that has some carp fishing tackle in stock.
