Pete,

We'll see about the Diamond Hard. I'm also getting some Bug-Bond and a new and powerful lamp.

Still love most of the LCR's for the convenience. It's much more fun and easy doing coated saltwater and pike flies with this stuff at your hands.

Martin

G'day Martin...
All the L.C.A.'s are wonderful... I've comfortably settled into my BB comfort zone...
While epoxy still has a place in production tying and fixing loose chairs, I won't be playing any more 5 minute "beat the clock" nor hangin' stuff out to "dry" on my phly turner...

Dr Ned Lunt is a true gentleman, a scholar among men, a dental luminary, a teacher, an inventor, a family man, a Renaissance man, and a REALLY NICE GUY !!!
In his free time some years back, he had a notion and a vision which changed the phly tying landscape forever...
and Tuffleye was introduced...
It's still the only L.C.A. product cured with the non-UV, non-hazardous-to-your-eyeballs' safe Blue Light...
['been to your dentist's office lately?!]
Unlike epoxy, acrylics are a non-yellowing resin and light-tuned/activated hardener all in one...
Early on, there were some consumer issues with phlyz yellowing...
Suspecting that the problem was not with the Tuffleye but with what the tyers' were using to coat the phlyz with, Dr Ned developed a "purified" version of a clear liquid lacquer sealant to defeat the tacky residue and to make the phly look prettier in the box...
[the phish really don't care]...
but I digress...

With that in mind, several years ago ['almost 3] I placed some samples in a box and stuck that box in a dark corner cubbyhole of my tying bench...
Today I opened that "time capsule"... 'Quite a curious revelation !...
Below is a photo that explains why I use and recommend Tuffleye Clear Coat over the other more recognizable product[s]...
A picture is worth a thousand wordz...!!!
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it...

Pete,

Love the color.

I've been fooling around with large flies the last few days, and man, do they eat some materials? But man, are they also fun to tie!

[b]Martin...
When I tie some small stuff I'm always amazed at how little material is "consumed"...
Besides being able to actually SEE THEM...

Pete,

Love that "owly" look of the flies when seen from the front.

Very nice as always.

Martin
