This is a really good all-purpose glue and has a few uses for the fly tier when not using epoxy . It has not failed me on sticking eyes to flies It stays pliant for long enough to get the job in place and you can still re position the eyes after 10 Min's if you wish to , and is fairly strong after a few hours, and totally dependable after 24 hours. Once set, it repels water, and still retains a little pliancy. so it has its a lot of better points than normal super glue which you have to get right pretty much every time due to its instant stick and some super glues have a really annoying white powder that forms and you have to wash off ....
My only criticism after using this product for a few months now (yes one 33g tube) is the tube itself, which after initial use has a top that's a pig to unscrew as the glue goes into a rubber like bung in the top , but what i do is use cocktail sticks to puncture a hole in the top and i still get enough out to do what ever job I'm using it for , if it does get to the stage of being too thick to get out i just get in there with a small pair of long nose pliers very easy to pull the offending blockage out and at around £5.00 UK for american buyers you can get it shipped to you but I'm not sure if you can get it over the pond it may be a different name , but still worth getting
PIKE TREK SAMURAI PIKE FLY HOOKS 6/0
uncle Greg over at pike trek (click the pic above) sent me some of there new samurai hooks which a basically a half circle hook , and i studied it for a while , turned it this way and that mulled a few ideas over before finally committing material to hook , as the shank on these is quite short so obviously not to much space to work with , but as with most new things sometimes i need to think about things for a while to get the best out of them
after tying in the back all I've done is hollow tie 4 thin clumps of orange around the head (bad lighting sorry) of course you can make this as thick or as thin as you like i like to give em something to chew on sometimes . i will tomorrow do a video for this so stay tuned .
