For the small, buggy patterns I normally tie for Bluegills, UV Resins usually only get used to make a wingcase on nymphs, especially if I'm doing a "flashback" style, with a bit of Flashabou tied over the thorax, then the UV material applied in a drop over the Flashabou. It acts as a lens and scatters the light reflected from the Flashabou in all directions. I suppose it looks like a gas bubble trapped in the wingcase of an emerging insect.
UV resins really shine in bigger patterns, like Puglisi minnows and wool-head sculpins. You can soak the liquid resin into the fibers, flatten them in a direction you want them to go, then hit it with the torch to set the resin.
Follow up most final applications with CS Seat Coat UV Blast. No light required. Glues can be used for fast set-ups but most leave a residue. Google UV lights to find one that meets your needs.
Rob I use the UV glues but like Jim said they are pricey shop around. I really don't use it a lot just when I want an outside shell on a fly works great for that..
yes and they work well.shop around there are great deals if you do.some brands can be pricy.
I was curious if any of the fly tiers here have tried any of the many fly tying UV Glues available, and if so what your experiences were. Both with the glue and the light source. Thank you

Marvin you will need a cheap vise, thread, bobbin, marabou and what ever else your going to tie with. Here is a suggestion. go through the pictures of the people in this group FLY TYING & JIG TYING and look through them. That will give you a starting point if one or more catch your eye. Some are advanced but I'm sure after a few jigs under you belt you'll be doing most of them. Anymore question don't be afraid to ask we are here to help you. There are some other groups that can offer up some pictures look around there is so much there don't be afraid to look and ask.
Bill Duncan;; nice job on that one buddy!!
hhaha Allan i made one of those soon as you told me about it! and your right! works terrific!! now all i need is a few more bobbins! LOL
