    I've only used the Loon resin and Loon light so I can't compare it to any other system yet. Seems to be ok. There is another system out there which I would like to try - Tuffleye (sp?) I will when I use up all the Loon resin.

    A buzzer is a chironomid pattern, named after the buzzing sound they make.

    Here are some photos of the naturals and some patterns using the UV resin.

    You asked for some UV resin flies.

    I use it where you would use epoxy.

    Heres a caddis pupa.

    I sent these AttractAnts away for a terrestrial swap.

    I caught this on the Madison with a red/black TranparAnt pattern.
