Hi,

I was wondering whether anyone can recommend a waterproof glue for ensuring my braided butts remain on my flyline, several sites have mentioned that most glues gradually start to detoriate when wet! Confused

Does anyone have any recommendations for a suitable waterproof glue, one which does not dry rock hard like cement but remains pliable Question

Cheers
Jonathan

hi,

I dont think that glue exists ! I use loctite 406 plastic and rubber,I nail not double catch braided loop to line and a drop or two on knot ,this will leech onto line and braid so be careful and don't use to much.I use this on all shooting heads and I have never had a loop let go ,I tested it on an old line some time ago and was very very strong ,only drawback is cost of 406 is 48 euro small bottle !!

Niall.

..... Found a glue on the net which seems to do what I wanted "Miracle Glue"

Apparently Miracle Glue can also be used to mend holes in your waders, so there's an added bonus!

..... Here's another glue which gets good reviews "Pro's Soft Bait Glue"

As if it were that easy, apparently they only deliver in the US!
