Shrimp and bait fish group

Two more tricks Bob showed me (both also in his book):

1) Use small pads of Post-It type notes for mixing the epoxy. Once it sets, you just peel off the top sheet and throw it aaway. No mess!

2) Stick a copper pot-scrubber pad in a 35 mm film can and push your dubbing needle into it to clean off the epoxy after it dries. Works great!

Bob Popovics is one of the most creative guys I have ever met in fly tying. He's always coming up with good ideas, both great and small. I notice though that the caliber of creativity shown on this board is right up there with him. Following along is like taking a graduate-level course in fly design, tying and fishing. Many thanks!
