Thread: Tying challenge: UV/Epoxy Mayfly

  1. Default Tying challenge: UV/Epoxy Mayfly

    Winter is approaching (well, here in the EC Highlands it's actually pretty much already here), so I thought we could tie a bit ....

    The challenge:
    • Tie a mayfly nymph imitation/pattern that MUST have the some form of UV resin or epoxy built in and it must be visible!
    • The pattern may not be larger than #14
    • It must be a pattern you can tie a few of and actually fish


    You have a week to tie your fly/flies, and post your pics here. There is no prize, other than the soft fuzzy glow that you will find when people comment nicely on your attempts!!

    Think i might have a nice idea for using it in a dry fly but will take me much longer than a week to do.
