Trout Line have a new product for fly tiers : UV Resin in 2 types: classic type with low viscosity and high penetration and thick type with medium viscosity and slow penetration!
The UV Resin is used in tying world by fishermen who don’t want to apply multiple layers of head cement to obtain a nice and shinny body look for buzzers, streamers and heads for streamers. More than that, if you want to obtain a deep glossy body look of your fishing flies you need to wait hours and to apply multiple layers of head cement to obtain the desire look. With a resin that cures in seconds when the tier wants a new door was opened in fly tying universe. These resins cures in UV light so until you will not expose the material at this light (or solar light who contain UV light also) the material will stay fluid. If you have enough power light the resin will cure in seconds and you will have a deep glossy look of your flies. Buzzers started to look fantastic, body streamers are nice and clear with a crystal class look and will not receive a yellow tint in time. Heads of big streamers will look fabulous and will have the desired shape. You can have scuds and shrimps with nice an transparent bodies in seconds. Until now without UV Resin these thinks where almost impossible to achieved. Now is simple, easy and everybody can do that without spending hours and hours in tying process. Another big win is time! : with head cement or with epoxy you have to wait from minutes to hours to have a hard body/head of the fly. More than that you have to rotate to have material applied in uniform layers. With UV resin you will finish a body of fly in seconds. No rotary gadgets needed!
Trout Line succeeded to produce this resin in different viscosity. This is not new, other products like Deer Creek, Bug Bond or Loon are on the market . If somebody will ask what bring extra these resins the answer is : not sure that are big differences between them. Based on our tests the resins cure nice, transparent with a deep glossy aspect and without tack. Is just a similar product but the price is more convenient!
