Nice Steve!

I picked up a bunch too - playing with some flounder patterns inspired by John M. Rich suggests using it in any application where you might otherwise use Epoxy - cool stuff!

Nice flies Steve! But if you keep that up you'll have to change your title!

Adrian, interesting you should mention using this stuff for a flounder pattern. That's one of the first things I thought of when I saw Steve's flies.

John, I know you`ve been using this stuff a lot so maybe you`ll know. When Rich was tying with it he was putting CA on the EZ body to stiffen it up he said. I haven`t used any CA on these, do you think it will make a differance?

Lesson learned

One thing I learned on Saturday in Newport is that it's not a good idea to buy a pack of silli-skin from Rich Murphy and then go over and talk to Joe Cordeiro and Kenny Abrames about natural materials. Did I take major grief? Yup.
