Dismal Failure

If your going to continue fabricating Crease Flies, and use cyanoacrylate glues, you will have to get yourself some Golden West, Super Solvent sold in most fly shops, works like a charm .
Here are some Crease flies that I tied.

Is this anything like you are tying.

I wish mine looked that good ! I will prevail, it just might take longer than I expected. For such a simple fly it`s giving me all kinds of headaches.

Foiled Again...

I have also been working on crease flies but have been trying to attach foil to the outside of the foam. I am using foil with an adhesive back that seems to bind well until I apply the epoxy coating. When the epoxy dries it appears to be shrinking and pulling back the foil. Any tips or tricks to keep this from happening?
