Funny! I never thought indicator. Just cool looking red stuff.... I need more coffee........
Just red fly tying thread and coated with Loon UV Knot Sense
What could you use instead of knot sense?
Any rubbery waterproof glue like Pliobond.
Ok cool thanks for the info.
thanks blue. shoe goo was a bitch. i need to warm it up some.
Aqua Seal works too.
i put a few more coats on. seemed to be the trick. but....i did what blue does and wrapped one up in my vise. i love it. feels strong, and slender as a starving rat.
Gorilla glue , you can also tie flies with it "ants" just add a little with a drop of water and coat .
Welded loops aren't hard at all if you have the right tools, a heat gun w/ a nozzle and shrink tubing in the appropriate size(s). For thick lines, say a Skagit line, it works best to use a thin line and weld it to the thick line in a loop instead of folding it over. Heck, if I can do it, almost anyone can...
Talk to Ron or Sandy at http://store.allaboutthefly.com/lineweldingkit.aspx, they have a welding kit. I learned from Ron and a few others, and have welded many of my lines when the factory loops have failed or if they didn't have them in the first place. Works best on newer lines, if the line is old, a braided connecter is what I would use.
