What's in your vise?

Sometimes the simple stuff works best. Anybody still fishing Dry Falls in season? Years ago a juicy Nyerge's Nymph was big medicine on big trout. Have not fished there in over 20 years.

@Stonefish Went to the flyshop yesturday & bought this, Gulff Ambulance Hot FL. Red & made a few today by tying a knot on the end of Stroft 0.50 mono & dipping the knot end into a little bit of UV resin on a empty beer carton. View attachment 182844 View attachment 182845
Adam,

Those look great and thanks for sharing that.
Probably cheaper in the long run then buying the pre-made ones.
I really like that Gulff is offering UV cure in colors.

I'm going to mess around and make up a few using this technique with the clear UV Solarez thick and some small beads I have.
I have some old red nail polish that I used many moons ago for painting steelhead jigs before I switched to using vinyl paints.
