Some more free swag courteous of Gordon van der Spey at the FFFT Expo. Over the years I’ve tried practically every UV resin on the market since they became popular 7 yrs ago. Clear cure goo, Deer creeks (Diamond White) Loon’s UV resin, Tuffeleye eventually settling with David Edwards Bug-Bond and have been with them since its inception in December 2009. All of them at some stage though have been quoted as saying that their products are the best on the market, Dries in 10 seconds or less and with a none tack free finish. So I have to admit I was intrigued to see a new kid on the block coming out of the States called “Solarez” which I’ve noticed lately being promoted through a number of FB pages I follow over here, also stating it’s the best UV resin on the market with a completely tack free finish.

Solarez comes in three consistencies (FLEX, THIN & THICK) and can be ordered in either these nifty 5 gram tubes or in the larger 2oz & 4oz bottle format. My only concern with using tubes is it...

Opened up my parcel of shrimp tails from Flymen fishing co the other day and was pleasantly surprised to find they’d slipped in a sample pack of their new Faux Bucktail which I’ve seen being showcased on FB and through their newsletter. It’s nigh impossible these days to find quality decent length bucktail especially here in SA,  Primo tails out in the States probably supply the best over the net but it’s so pricey to ship over here that its actually not worth it. So I have to admit the thought of trying something, all be it synthetic that has “similar” qualities to Bucktail certainly tweeked my interests. I must say now before I do carry on that all I know about this product is from what I’ve read through the Flymen fishing Co’s newsletter. I’ve also refrained from watching any tying tutorials that I see dotted around the web purely because I wanted this to be as impartial a review as I could possibly make it.

On first glance it looks the bizz!! 6 inches of equally lengthed tapere...
