  1. After reading your post I Googled EZ-Shape and found it at Saltwaterflies.com. Looks like something I need to add to my shopping list. Thanks! Regards, Chuck Connor
  2. I've seen the Loc-Tite brand super glue in some local stores. My other hobby is building scale models and I use super glue a lot for that. That white you're seeing is called fogging and is a chemical reaction between the vapors of the glue and the material. It doesn't happen all the time, only with certain formulations of super glue and certain materials. I'll try my old standard, Zap-a-Gap. If that fogs I'll grab some of that Loc-Tite. Thanks for the tip, Mike! Regards, Chuck Connor
  3. Well, if superglue holds up to saltwater fishing I'm sure it will hold up in fresh water. Thanks for the advice, Dave! Regards, Chuck Connor
  4. Good day all! I returned to the wonderful sport of fly fishing a few years ago after an absence of a bit over 20 years. It's great to be back! Last year I built a few rods and this year I'm blowing the dust off my fly tying "skills". When I left the sport, synthetcs were just begining to make the scene and my question falls in that area. I bought a bunch of plastic and foam popper bodies in various sizes and styles along with appropriate sizes of hooks. I'll be tying these flies for panfish, bass and saltwater fishing. I know the bodies need to be glued to the hooks. My question is: What are the pros and cons of epoxy vs superglue for this application? I'm thinking superglue will probably be ok for the little panfish poppers, but epoxy would be better for the bass and saltwater poppers. Does it make any difference? Tight Lines! Chuck Connor
