Nice Steve!

I picked up a bunch too - playing with some flounder patterns inspired by John M. Rich suggests using it in any application where you might otherwise use Epoxy - cool stuff!

Those are cool. Nice job!
Bought some of the stuff, but haven't used it yet.

Nice flies Steve! But if you keep that up you'll have to change your title! :devil:

Adrian, interesting you should mention using this stuff for a flounder pattern. That's one of the first things I thought of when I saw Steve's flies.

Keep it up Steve....They are looking great as is your passion for tying!

John, I know you`ve been using this stuff a lot so maybe you`ll know. When Rich was tying with it he was putting CA on the EZ body to stiffen it up he said. I haven`t used any CA on these, do you think it will make a differance?

One thing I learned on Saturday in Newport is that it's not a good idea to buy a pack of silli-skin from Rich Murphy and then go over and talk to Joe Cordeiro and Kenny Abrames about natural materials. Did I take major grief? Yup.
