The fly is no big deal, just an all purpose pattern I tie up for smallies and pike. I do like the Hareline Yak Fur though,,,,cool stuff.
I used Aleene's Fabric Fusion for the head and I have to admit this stuff is great. Water based, goes on thick and is nice and clear (see below). I want my son to start fly tying and I don't want him using toxic adhesives. Fabric Fusion is a very nice alternative to epoxy.
I picked my bottle up at WalMart for $4. Check in the fabric section...
Give it a whirl and let me know what you think.
