Hello,

I use the brand "UHU", but I don´t know if it is available in the US. Often I did prepare too much of that material at the same time, so I use a crown cap and a tooth pick to mix the right amount for one streamer.

And there is another advantage - Now, I have a reason to drink a bottle of beer to get enough crown caps

So I finally picked up some Bug Bond and had a chance to tie with it. WOW, this stuff is the best epoxy I've used. The Original Lite makes excellent coverings such as what you'd use for Copper Johns. I can see the Lite stuff being excellent with smaller flies, like Two Bits or smaller CJ's.

I'd imagine for something like a scud back or where a thicker coat is needed the original formula would be the way to go?

I am officially converted. Great stuff. Anyone who's not happy with their current product or curious about trying something different should look no further.

Jor Fly:

I don't know which Epoxy you got, because Gorilla Glue makes one that dries clear, and one that dries white. Perhaps you picked up the white by mistake?

I currently use either DevCon or Loctite Epoxy.

Had the same problem as you until I found "clear" epoxy. Wish that I could tell you the brand, but just have the double tube with no label.
