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:

Fly Tying Tip using Future Glue

Creg, a satisfied customer recently sent in this super glue story … “For over 40 years I have enjoyed trout fishing and tying artificial insect patterns to entice the trout to strike.  Over the years I have used numerous types of head cements that were commercially manufactured and available specifically for fly tying at sporting goods stores … A little over a year ago I found that I had inadvertently left the top off of my head cement container and the head cement had hardened beyond use.  Now I had a dilemma, I needed to tie some flies for an upcoming fishing trip but didn’t have any head cement and the closest availability for some new head cement was 37 miles away … My next step was Wal-Mart. …. That was when I saw the package of “Future Glue” brush on… I purchased my first bottle, rushed home, tied several flies and found that “Future Glue” far surpassed any other type of head cement I had ever used. … I have passed this secret on to numerous other fly tyers and friends who now have switched to Future Glue Brush-On as well.”
