    Flex Seal rings a bell.

    Thanks so much.

    I think I read you could use it inside waders, but maybe not.

    Thanks again.

    When wanting to go fishing just tell the spousal unit "I'm going to get supper, have the deep fryer hot and ready when I get home". Just don't forget to stop by WalMart on the way home and pick up a box of IQF catfish fillets.

    Not really a trick as such but I use a small separate fly box to store flies that are wet , I donít like the idea of putting wet flies straight back into the main box after use.

    I thought I saved the link, but apparently not.

    Does anyone know the name of the spray? And does it work?
    Have you tried the water proofing spray like would be used on a tent? This can be found at most stores that carry camping gear? I have some and tried it on my 'breathable' waders but have yet to try them out.

    I always keep a bare, long shank barbless hook in my flybox. A super sharp hook cleans any dried glue or resin out of your fly eye faster than the one on most nippers. It works great on those #16 and smaller hooks. I know I should have noticed it on the vise, but long tying sessions make me stupid...lol.

    I keep a few safety pins on my vest to help clean clogged eyes.

    If you fish multiple fly rigs you will inevitably catch two fish at the same time.

    When unhooking a double, deal with the bottom fish first. Otherwise you've got a hook swinging around by your hands and arms and clothing with a panicky fish making it all very unpredictable. It is an excellent way to hook yourself. I know. I've done it.

    After reading your post, I now have a safety pin on my vest. Heck of a lot easier than pulling out my fly box and pulling out a hook. No risk of losing flies or dropping box and much, much faster.

    Thanks Brownbass
