I've been tying for a couple months now, using Craven's book. I'm currently at the Copper John.
I've been using the Loon UV clear fly finish in both thick and thin depending on the fly.
I've been using the thin fly finish for where Craven calls for something to lock in the threads on the underbody or a threaded head. Is that OK or should I use something different?
Is the thick fly finish the proper stuff to finish out the wing case on a fly like the Copper John?
When should I be using the head cement instead? It's also $8 a bottle vs $13.
