Cure goo

I generally tie flies as I need them to match what I see in the water. This means few flies overall and no mass production to fine tune certain techniques. I do like to try new stuff especially if it's hi tech. I've tried epoxy flies after jury rigging a type of rotisserie with very limited success. So along comes these various acrylics that cure with some type of UV light. I got the Cure goo kit that comes with a battery operated light , a tube of thin and a tube of thick goo. I threw together a couple of flies and tried out the thin goo. It went on easily enough and it cured real fast under the UV light. I will need to work on my application techniques but the stuff is a lot easier to work with than epoxy.

If at first you do not succeed-sky diving is not the sport for you.

Yeah Bob.... Clear Cure Goo it's good stuff. Brian the owner is a great guy.
We talk at Somerset Show.

Lot's more working time than chemically timed epoxy.
Much faster, apply in small doses to sculpture shapes, hardens right away for the next application, don't have to mix contents, stays clear over time.

Just remember it is not an adhesive to glue parts together but will join them by the bond of the material itself.

Only draw back is the tackieness with some type of blends. Most cover it with a final coat of nail polish.
Nothing flies by me without a hook!

Thumbs up

Going to pick up some at the Saltwater show in Providence RI. this weekend. I never had to rush a fly usually just put two part epoxy on and send it to the rotary dryer. Saw Bob Popovics do the UV Clear Goo demonstration at another show. Now that I'm one the instructors for Trout unlimited youth group i would like to be able to keep the interest of the group with the finished results sooner. This is defiantly the way to go, who would have thought forty years ago products like this. I used my rod building finish on my saltwater flies years ago till the two part epoxy in the tube came out.

Cure goo

I agree. Great material. (i use bug-bond). I have experienced a problem with tackiness, though, and finish can be more of a satin. I saw capcastfly's post re nail polish coating after fluorescent light cure. Interested in the specifics. Anyone try an epoxy coat over the cured material?
