If your going to continue fabricating Crease Flies, and use cyanoacrylate glues, you will have to get yourself some Golden West, Super Solvent sold in most fly shops, works like a charm .
Here are some Crease flies that I tied.

Is this anything like you are tying.

I wish mine looked that good ! I will prevail, it just might take longer than I expected. For such a simple fly it`s giving me all kinds of headaches.

I have also been working on crease flies but have been trying to attach foil to the outside of the foam. I am using foil with an adhesive back that seems to bind well until I apply the epoxy coating. When the epoxy dries it appears to be shrinking and pulling back the foil. Any tips or tricks to keep this from happening?
