For snapper in the Hauraki Gulf!!
Mike Ladle kindly introduced me to Alan Bulmer in New Zealand who decided to take the plunge and order Bug-Bond. I received a great email from Alan today... He's allowed me to post the picture and a couple of quotes...
"The top fly is a “Hair ball” and the bottom fly is a “Featherweight”. They will be used to target snapper in the Hauraki Gulf instead of soft plastics. Fished on drop shot tackle with braid they should be deadly"
"Bug-Bond is a revelation. 15 seconds after application and curing with the UV torch and the resin is as hard as Japanese arithmetic. It is without doubt the sexiest fly tying accessory that I’ve ever played with. No need for a fly rotator to allow the two pot epoxy to cure. Just apply and set. Stunning! The opportunities for this product are limitless"
