Trucos de montaje

Two Quickies
By Brad Bohrer, Dracut, Massachusettes

1. When finishing the head of a fly, rather than using head cement. Try waxing the thread (bee's wax, available at fabric stores) prior to whip finishing. As the whip finish is being completed the wax will bond the knot together. This way the hackle and the rest of the fly will not be messed up.

2. Instead of using epoxy on the head or the body of the fly, Loon Products has a coating called Hard Head. Appling this coating, depending on the fly tiers needs, eliminates the mess and does a nice job. It may be applied in several layers. ~ Brad Bohrer
