Never tried actually, as I am allergic to epoxy.

I'd say my personal weakness is in tying married quill wings (or any quill wings for that matter). I don't do it enough to be proficient, so when I DO try I end up with something that looks like the fly I posted in the Warm Water forum

seriously, i have to say my dry flies, not because they are hard but because i'm a perfectionist, i won't settle for second best and i'm always trying to make them better...i can't say the classic salmon flies cause i've never tried to tie them...and my deer hair bass bugs have progressed to a level that i feel comfortable with (not saying that they are great, but they do catch fish)
