Slinger At last, long last I`m back on line. Been without a puter for a year and a half! Pete, these look like everything else you tie..... superb. They bring to mind the fly that John tied a few yrs ago where all the hackles were epoxied to a collar of EZ body forming a tent over the body. I tied up a bunch of copies and they caught like mad. Looking around it`s nice to see a few old friends. Hope to run into everyone a Scotties show.

highway61 Pete, I gotta get me some of that bug bond....I am sick of using Bryllcreem!!

John... Welcome back to the PHUTURE!

I'll bet you're still using Bryllcreem...
We should "do lunch" and get you "caught up"...
here's a Bug-Bond, phlash surpressed version on a Mustad Signature Series #4 shrimp hook...

Hook sizes can be somewhat relative, arbitrary, and "close enough for government work"... Tiemco #8 on top, Mustad #4 Shrimp on bottom...

Mustad #6 Signature Series Shrimp AND... the most interesting J-Vise DamaSteel jawz in town...

striblue I must be not in tune with the latest development...I have the Tuffleye, but have never tried the Bug-Bond...Is this something all fly shops carry? It looks much better than the epoxy and goop I always use. I will call you Pete.

Dble Haul This stuff is great, and I really enjoy tying flys with the Farrar blend. I haven't tried the blend with Tufflye though, so you've given me something to think about.

Great photography, too.

Buggy insinuendo...

Just playin' around with shrimp-esque critterz...
When you can find an emptying guzzle with decapods being phlushed into the "mugging zone", the "house odds" take on a new slant...

JonC Really nice as usual, what do you call that buggy thing,looks like a big trout fly.

UV curing acrylics

Great looking flies! Is the Bug Bond the same product as the other UV cured products like Loon Outdoors "UV Knot Sense" or "UV Wader Repair"? I also have a tube of Redington "Sun Set Super Patch". All these products require a UV light in the 395 to 450 nm spectrum range.

Be certain to be careful with your eyes when using UV lights . I try to wear safety glasses designated for UV protection.

Damascus steel

In a previous life used to own a damascus barrelled hammer action 12 gauge. Always loved the patterns of damascus steel. It had 32"barrels and with light loads was deadly for decoying wood pigeons when I lived in England. Sold all my guns after I moved to Canada as I stopped hunting.
Made me quite nostalgic.
