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.

Comment by Allen Morgan on March 7, 2015 at 8:10pm

This one's for Carl, and anyone else that ties a lot of Wooly Buggers or Crappie Jigs.

Comment by Bill Dungan on March 7, 2015 at 7:16pm

Thanks Dick. I know its just a few more days before I an start fishing.

Comment by dick tabbert on March 7, 2015 at 3:09pm

Wow Bill I didn't know you didn't have a rotating vice so I know you got a little work in it and I can also say it looks to be a very good tie. I can see many a gill falling pray to this ant for sure. Keepum coming my friend.
