    Hi,

    I used Loctite Super Glue as it does not burn the material, what is your favourite surface fly if I may ask ?

    Any CA glue suitable for foams or plastic (like Loctite406).

    Creasies has become my go-to topwater fly, replacing Gurglers(or as they are known here - Flippers) and other poppers. I find them much more versatile in presentation, looks more like the real deal and easier to cast in bigger sizes.

    Hi Stephen, how long to do you have the feathers behind ? Which hooks do you prefer ?
