The Bug Bond Starter Kit contains everything needed to begin working with this UV Cure resin. If you want to tie Trout or Salmon flies with this convenient resin then this is the kit for you.
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 theyve 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 dont 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 Ive called Bug-Bond."
This starter kit includes a Multi LED UV Light, a 20ml bottle of either Bug Bond Original or Bug Bond Lite and a set of the Bug Bond Pro Tips.
