Fly Tying: Bug Bond (the clearer & durable resin)

Bugeel by Andy Elliott of Belfast

I did a short post awhile back re patterns with a resin covered head and Simon Graham commented he was using a new product called Bug Bond. I came across posts at DEESOX and a UK Salt Water forum, which again pointed to Bug Bond, a product created in the UK by David Edwards. I have not messed with two step epoxy’s and only used UV gels for covering the knots of the butt section/end of fly line. For those that want to provide that glistening, life like appearance this Bug Bond might be a simpler, more durable product. BUG BOND.

I am not sure if Bug Bond is distributed in the U.S. I also wonder if anyone has experimented with Loon UV Cure (I have used for knots and wader repair) in fly tying (durability/clear?)

 At some point, have the few streamers in the box and think about the chase, the presentation, and how to excite the fish. Every season there are several points in which a streamer will entice that cruising thug in the shallows of a lake or waiting and what they are best suited for…
