You've sold me.....

Pete- After seeing yet more of your creations, I've decided to hop a ride on the "Blue Light Special"- just ordered my kit and a couple tubes of the Flex from Scott at Bear's Den- can't wait to start concocting some offerings for the tight-lipped denizens of the Sarasota Bay area, which I'll be thrashing with my 9wt the first week of April.
Will look for you at the shows early next year....
Doc

Very cool, is that EZ BB on the inside? And the moire pattern on your vise jaws, pretty fancy, next you'll need an engine turned base.
Cheers,
Jon

Bug-Bond vs Tuffleye

Pete- for which applications do you favor the Bug-Bond over the Tuffleye? I just got my order for the latter today from Bear's Den (that was FAST)....wondering now if I need to spend a little more to get the Bug-Bond at some point (after I've practiced technique first with the Tuffleye).

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.

Michael.

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.

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...

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.
