Are you a trout fishing enthusiast?  Do you have difficulty getting your fly down to where the trout feed?  According to Tim Flagler, “The brassie is simply an extremely effective pattern which imitates both caddis and midge larvae, with the added bonus that it sinks like a rock, getting down to levels where the trout most often feed.”

Check it out — this video is OUTSTANDING!  We are, of course, proud that it features our product Zap-A-Gap … we’ve heard anecdotal evidence for many, many years that fly fishermen love Zap-A-Gap for fly tying, but this descriptive visual is really first-rate and will, most importantly,  help you catch more trout!!  Here you go:

Paul is one of several customers who have written in to tell us how much they like our super glue products for fly fishing, and in particular, fly tying.  Here’s what he told us:

“I’m a ‘fly tier’.  Tying hundreds and hundreds of fishing flies every year, I had to find a way to shorten many ‘tying steps’, without running the risk of ruining quality.  So, I began sealing my flies, after tying off the thread at the end, with Super Glue!  It’s extremely fast drying, and holds better than the conventional ‘fly tier’s knot’, also making my flies far more durable and longer lasting.”
