Bug Bond is a new and revolutionary UV Cure resin used as a replacement for normal varnish or adhesives. Commonly used as a coating material on flies, but can also be used during rod manufacture or repair.
With drying times of only a few seconds this new product is causing a storm in the fly tying community!
Here is what David Edwards, The man who brought Bug Bond to the UK has to say about it:
"Fly fishing has to be one of the most rewarding methods of fishing for any species. It is the ability to trick a fish into believing that a jumble of old feathers, fur, man made fibre and a bit of flash is the next tasty meal. Whether it is visually an imitation of what they've been eating courtesy of mother nature or merely a prompt to strike, who knows what the fish thinks.
One of the many materials you will use when tying a fly is an adhesive or a varnish. I don't like using solvent based materials and without any real alternative in the UK I decided to develop an alternative. Over a year down the line and a lot of testing I found the answer I was looking for. The answer is in the shape of a photo-activated acrylic which I've called Bug-Bond."
This professional kit includes the upgraded Professional Torch, with a very high UV output for optimal curing, a 20ml bottle of either Bug Bond Original or Bug Bond Lite and a set of the Bug Bond Pro Tips.
