John Desjardins Flexcoat or U-40 rod finishing epoxy will give you a really thin coat that doesn't yellow. you do need a rotator then because it takes a couple of hours to cure.

O Mister Worshipful and Honorable Grego

If you first form your epoxy heads with Five Minute Epoxy, then make a second batch of Thirty Minute and recoat. The heads will not discolor if you do so.

Don't thank me, thank worshipful 'others' who've chosen to drift away from the board

grego JohnM,

If you are using 5 minute epoxy, don't tie up too many in advance; amost all of my epoxies from last year are now yellowed or milky. I have three suggestions: (1) tie them in small batches as you need them (2) put then in a case that does not allow light in (UV is what kills the epoxy)

(3) use 20 minute epoxy, if you want them for the long haul.

Been tying a lot of streamers with that lately.

Collection of Surf Candies and Spread flys s

Here is a collection of Popovics surf candies and a couple of spread flys in the lower right hand side... and some bait fish flys. I tied these last year and used them a lot in the spring.. each time I used one I would replace it to keep the collection with two flys of each color needed.
