never had any problem with epoxy so why add something different to the tying desk?? i believe in learning about tying, that is why i took a 3 day course in Atlantic salmon fly tying, made me a far better overall fly guy. so adding some other adhesive does not do much for my tying, i don't think, anyway.Yep it's cool to be stuck in your ways. But dont fool yourself into thinking its easier. If you opened your mind to new possibilities you may discover that UV resins are a hundred times faster and easier than epoxy.
Doing something for 60 years does not make it the best way. By all means do things however you like, but posting about things you are 100% ignorant about makes you look quite silly.
but you know, i will check in with my local fly shop, waters west, and ask about this just so i fill out another hole in my knowledge.
