Anyone ever try using tear mender for applying eyes to flies. I saw gunnar brammer use tear mender in one of his videos and I liked the idea of it so I bought some myself. In his video, the tear mender is white in color when applied, and dries clear. The problem I am having is that the my tear mender dries, it turns into an opaque tan color. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on why it isn't clear or if anyone has any experience.
I have started tying bass and panfish poppers and shallow diving flies. I am using used wine corks for the body and articulating shafts and split rings to attach a treble hook to the shaft or long shank hooks for a single hook point. When I first started, I was using ZAP GOO, but it's too flexible. So I have been trying Original Gorilla Glue. The Gorilla Glue holds up to rasping and sanding the cork once it is attached to the hook where ZAP GOO would not. Now I know Gorilla Glue will expand as it dries, but I sometimes use that to my advantage, such as filling holds in the cork bodies. My question is has anybody tried Gorilla Glue for attaching popper bodies to hooks? Here a two of my flies they were tied so I could fish for bass with them.
