Question Popeel

Hey Striblu!
I'm working on duplicating your popeel that I saw at another place. How do you handle your epoxy process? Doing it by hand or even w/a rotary vise is no fun. I was wondering about using my rod drying motor & wondered if you had made some kind of rig to hold your flies while they rotate.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Mark

I don't use any motor... just the vise and I don't use a lot of epoxy for the eel.... I always use the vise when appling epoxy... I really don't find it a problem ..infact I prefer to have the flexability while rotating to add or reverse the turns.. let it sit for a moment and move it around at different intervals.
