Is there anything in these flies that is tied in the traditional sense, other than the initial base of braid?
Is everything else, hair, hackle, flash, all glued with UV?

Generally, the base braid is only element tied in with thread. On some, I tied in a tail of mac yarn, to offset the weight of the hook bend, also providing some anti- fouling effect, before wrapping the braid.

Mr Bimini...

Your assumptions are, in part, somewhat phlawed...

phibers and phlash are secured in a "traditional" manner with thread...

3D eyez are encapsulated with light cured resin...

phlat Wangs are welded in place...

completed head is treated to an anti-tack clear top coat...

 

on the other hand, if you google "peeete's welded wide body", you will see

most [if not all] of the pheatherz and phlash welded to the Bill's Body Braid phoundation...

 

Since a photo is said to be worth a thousand words,

with that in mind, I'll crank out a SBS...

stand by to stand by for news...

photos at eleven...

The Shadow knows, I will attemping some Phine Phly Phrying in a few hours.

After holiday respite from tying, back to the best kind of vices. Glad to have J-Vice tools and excellent petegray inphomercial for some intricate yet relaxing activies.

Nothing like too much family, to remember that putting the "phun" in dysphunctional can sometimes become a hazardous sport. More barbed hooks less barbed statements. ;) ;) ;)

... and, my dog bit me during a short wrestling match over turkey debris from who knows where. TGIM.

THANK GOD IT'S MONDAY, almost. Tetanus and Flu shots for me

Still have a horn-of-plenty for which to be THANKFUL.. Wishing All a great weekend and week :) :) :)
