Here is the results with Gorilla glue. Not sure I will do anymore until I find the Quick Set formula and a rotating vice.

I'm glad it worked for you Bill. I found its not a fast process with the gorilla glue but it does work.

Comment by Bill Dungan on March 7, 2015 at 9:57am

Thanks Dick, I tried it again and with very little water. It's time consuming but the results are quite good. 

Comment by dick tabbert on March 7, 2015 at 9:53am

Bill I can tell you it takes very little water to activate it almost a light dampening. It does take awhile to dry thats one of the downfalls but dries into a foam looking material.

yeah that is a cool method,i only use gorilla super glue on my flies.it is a better product than the other brands in my opinion.doesn't have that white crusty residue and they claim it is flexible

Comment by Bill Dungan on March 7, 2015 at 9:09am

Gorilla Glue?  I can't find the Quick Set formula. I bought the only Gorilla glue I could find but it didn't seem to set up very quick. I may have used too much water. Do you guys know if I have to use the "Quick Set" formula or can I use the regular. 

I'm trying to the some ant patterns and saw this neat way to use this glue. 

Here is a link if your interested.

I've used sewing thread.
It's what I first had.
For anything above about #12 it works.
Good tip on the shellac, Andy.

I have not been disappointed with results when I use sewing thread. I do "snap test" to make sure it isn't too weak. I only buy red, white and black at the fly shop.

a lot of tenkara flies are tied with sewing thread

Comment by Andy is OptiMystic on March 2, 2015 at 6:34am

I have tied a few times with regular unwaxed sewing thread when I didn't have tying thread in the color I wanted and to alleviate some concern about durability I would put clear polish on it between layers of wraps. It soaks it up and basically becomes a single solid mass.
