Pete,

Angry or misunderstood... I have to say that I love the fly portraits straight from the front. So much personality!

Martin

Good morning Pete,

whilst looking the new picture made from the front, I became unsure who the predator is, the fish in the water or the fish imitation at the fly line........
very nice as everytime. Thanks.
Cheers
Jan

Good morning Pete,

it's me again with a question. After my first attempts, my LCR work looks still horrible, but the movement of the fly is very subtle in the water (bath tube). My question is, when you're welding a phly with 3 saddle feathers on each side, are they all welded with the shiny side to the hook or tube and what is you preferred tool for applying LCR (I know these are two questions - sorry Wink )?

Cheers

Jan

Pheatherz [generally speaking] have a concave [inner/dull] and a convex [outer/shiny] side... [please correct me if I'm mistaken]
I apply a bead of L.C.A. along the spine [just wide enough to involve the barbs] on the concave side and a bead on the target [hook shaft/tube]...
Once ready to spot weld, have the light in hand and at-the-ready...
When the two surfaces touch and the phinal pheather position is achieved, ON goes the UV curing light... Bada BING... Bada BOOM...
I've tried Tuffleye, Clear Cure Goo, Bug-Bond, Loon, and Deer Creek...
The ONLY one left in my kit is BUG-BOND Original with the Pro Tip...
'Bug-Bond offers me the best control and pinpoint precision application...
It's durable, quick to cure, and my personal L.C.A. of choice... 'works BEST for ME...!!!
I also prefer Tuffleye Clear Coat to ensure a tack phree, glassy smooth surface...
and...
No matter which L.C.A. that you choose, I'd still recommend placing the phinished welded phlyz in the presence of the ultimate curing light [the SUN] to absolutely cure 100% thru and thru...

here's what happened this evening...
a typical welded phoundation...


some sparse buck tail and crystal phlash for body...

tented pheatherz welded in place and 3D eyez encapsulated with Bug-Bond Original...

I watched a tyer at the Somerset Show struggle with a popular brand "R" that needed a major overhaul... it was painful...
The cam-jaws were toast, the finish would make a zombie proud, and there was a general worn out feeling but the guy was distracted and oblivious...
'so were his phlyz... 'good on him... 'Keep Calm and Carry On...
I prefer tying in my JZone...!!!

Pete,

You keep on churning out these amazing baitfish flies! Endless variation and still a very distinct style.

You might be striving for the Jack Factor, but you definitely have the Pete Factor as it is.

I have been extremely busy with work lately and haven't tied for a while, but have on my itinerary to tie up some Pete's Welded Phlies for this upcoming season. The have to be able to catch fish here too!

Keep 'em coming.

Martin
