Brad Buzzi... Deep EZ Sand Eel

I had the great pleasure of meeting many fly tyers at the International Fly Tying Symposium in New Jersey in November last year... due to a variety of commitments I was unable to attend this November.  I missed the genuine warmth that comes from this show... the welcome I had in the US was fantastic. My first welcome though was from Brad Buzzi of BuzFly Products who kindly offered to pick me up from the airport and take me to the hotel... Brad is a hell of a nice guy and a great flytyer.

Brad emailed me recently to say that he'd been using Bug-Bond as an epoxy replacement on his Deep EZ Sand Eels and some of his other fly patterns... he also said "I like the fact that Bug Bond cures quickly and gives you a consistent finish that is easy to apply and durable when cured with the proper light".

I noticed on Stripersonline some time ago that Brad started to produce some great instructional videos and I'm honoured that he's chosen Bug-Bond to feature in one of his latest videos...

So click the link and watch Brad Buzzi of BuzFly Products in the US tie the Deep EZ Sand Eel.... thanks Brad and I'll be tying some of these for a mark I know in the UK!

Flybox & Bug-Bond: a marriage made at the vise

I received a  call earlier this year from Ian Christie who owns Flybox a company based in Scotland enquiring about Bug-Bond.  Flybox has built up quite a following and justifiably so as they manufacture and distribute their own high quality materials and flies. Ian had been testing alternative UV products but they weren't hitting the mark for him and he asked to test Bug-Bond... I'm pleased that the tests Ian performed went well (not unexpected really) and that he found that Bug-Bond is the real deal! Ian has been using Bug-Bond on their flies since then and my does he produce a nice fly or two.... (or three or four!!).

This is a piece about Ian and the flies are a small selection of the images he sent me! Faultless tying!

Thanks for sharing Ian and for putting your trust in Bug-Bond...

"Passion for fly fishing seems to be genetic in our family – my grandfather was a fanatic, my father an enthusiast, and so it seemed perfectly natural that I followed in their footsteps. Highly involved in club fishing as a teenager, I first took up fly tying when I was around 15 years old and I’ve been hooked ever since. For me it’s very much a creative process, finding new materials, developing new patterns and coming up with deadly combinations that give you that much needed edge when you’re on the water. 
In 2004 I took my passion to the next level and founded which allows me the freedom to do what I love for a living. As a company we continue to push the boundaries in fly design and fly tying materials, specializing in synthetics. For me it’s about being at the cutting edge of the market, working with competition anglers to make sure they have the best flies and materials available to them. 
It’s highly competitive at the top end of the fly tying market and I’m very lucky that I’m able to work with some of the best anglers in the country. I’m always striving to ensure that we are using the best combination of hooks, materials and the latest design techniques. Our designs, as a result, can seem highly unusual to those used to the more traditional fly patterns. However, at the end of the day, it’s catching fish that counts and they love to gobble up our patterns so I must be doing something right!"

Hywel Morgan - joins the Bug-Bond Team

It gives me immense pleasure to announce that Hywel Morgan one of fly fishing's personalities has joined the BUG-BOND™ Pro-Tying Team. Hywel is well known for his TV appearances and gave Bug-Bond its TV début this summer on Keith Arthur's programme "Tight Lines" (Sky Sports).

Not only is Hywel a talented fly-tyer, caster and fly fisherman, he can also convey this knowledge with a passion and humour that is highly infectious...

The smile says it all Hywel... welcome to the team!

I've included Hywel's bio here and by clicking the photo it will take you to his website where you will be able to find out more about his teaching and guiding services as well as his shop which include his DVDs, flies and essentials range.

Who is Hywel Morgan?

Hywel is the son of Welsh fishing guru Moc Morgan and perhaps unsurprisingly he was introduced to the pleasures of fishing at an exceptionally early age.
He first wet a line at just two and a half years of age and spent his early years fishing the Rivers Teifi and Ystwyth for wild brown trout and sea trout. Since then he has fished extensively throughout the UK, Europe, Australia and in the USA.


Having grown up in his father's shadow, Hywel decided to make a name for himself and started competing in casting competitions.
He started at local country fairs, then progressed to the CLA Game Fair where for three successive years he won every event. As a result he was asked not to compete any more so that others could have a chance of winning... and all this before he was sixteen years old.
He then turned to the British Casting Association and started to compete at British, European and World casting championships. During this time he amassed the following titles:

  • World Games Accuracy Casting Champion
  • European Distance Casting Champion
  • European Silver Medallist (Accuracy)
  • 14 British casting records
  • 6 times All Round British Champion
  • Over 100 British Individual titles
  • World Record holder for multiple casting (66 rods cast simultaneously)

Having been successful in the casting scene, Hywel decided to return to fishing. He has represented Wales on twelve occasions (and has been captain for his country three times). Six times were at home internationals, where he was Top Rod on three occasions. The other six were at World Championships, where he captained the Welsh team to a silver medal in Ireland in 1995 and was a member of the silver medal winning team at England 2000. Individually he has been one of the most successful competitors from all the home countries, gaining results in silver, 4th, 7th and 10th places..


Hywel has worked as a tackle consultant for numerous companies over the last eight years, helping to develop products for the British Market.


Hywel has presented programmes on fishing for Discovery Realtime, Horse and Country TV, Welsh TV channel S4C for a few years. He also has over 10 DVD titles on sale now. He has also made appearances on 'Record Breakers', the 'Big Breakfast' and has been a guest on Sky TV's 'Tight Lines'.

The Sandford Bullet... bite on that!

My dear friend Chris Sandford designed the much vaunted "Bullet" in his sleep... how many of us design things in our sleep? Sleep is a time for recharging the batteries but so often I wake at night thinking "Ah!" Little wonder then that Chris designed such a catcher as this... so what does it represent?
FISH FOOD was the answer from one of Chris's chums...

A step by step can be found on the website of Chris Reeves... Chris R actually introduced me to Chris S. The link for the step by step can be found here on Chris's website... I spoke to Chris Reeves yesterday and if you aren't up to tying the fly yourself then he'll gladly take an order on... in fact he'll tie up pretty much what you want from trout to saltwater!

If you look closely at the fly that Chris Sandford kindly tied for me at the Burton Fly Fair you'll see that Bug-Bond has been applied to the head... just enough to ensure that the fly lasts more than just a couple of fish. That's Chris's addition since designing the fly and compiling the step by step.

Back to the "Bullet"... I have ordered all the component parts and will be having a go myself... but WHY? Well the "Why?" revolves around a need to tie something other than pike and saltwater flies... like a child I'm increasing my vocabulary! It also has something to do with the fact that I'm looking for a new water... a dictate from the bailiffs at my local water is that all pike under 7lb have to be killed. It is something I can't get to grips with... the pike is a great adversary "Mr Nasty" of the fish world... but I love them too much. Its OK to take the odd fish for the table but undertaking fishery management with no science behind it I find abhorrent... with roach being regularly caught at over 2lbs the pike are hardly having a major impact.

So... Have rod will travel!

Martie vanden Brand - fly-tyer and artist!

I came across Martie van den Brand purely by accident... I was looking at some realistic shrimps that he had made and I then found out that he had been using Bug-Bond in the construction of the shrimps and also his other realistic works of art... and yes, without a doubt these are works of art! Martie like many other top realistic fly tiers are in a league of their own, not only creating museum quality exhibits but also fishable realistics. Some realistics are even used as Hollywood extras!

Some try and create debate through forums over the validity of realistics as to whether it is fly tying or not and unfairly call it model making... my personal view is that by having an appreciation of realistic tying and entomology or perhaps ichthyology, should help us to tie better (even if you don't personally practice realistic tying - and I don't) and it should also lead to better and more enjoyable fishing. 
For those who don't have an eye on Facebook and wonder who Martie is and what he creates I have pleasure in being able to show you, with Martie's permission, a few photos of his creations and a translation of his own bio... enjoy! 
"Hi, I create for several years various insects, sea horses, grasshoppers, beetles, shrimpstick insects... This hobby started because I'm quite fond of detail. The very rare seahorse, the leafy and the weedy sea dragons are reproduced full size. To do this you often have travel to far away zoos to witness them in aquariums. I also made ​​several grasshoppers, but 10 or 20 times larger than lifesize. Complete with all hair and legs like a real live creature in nature. I also make under water insects - stone fly nymphs... these are often up to 40 times magnification. You see for fun or interested enough for these exhibits, or possibly to buy for education please let me know. Thanks in advance for taking the trouble. Martie van den Brand"
Thank you for sharing your talent Martie and also for choosing to use Bug-Bond...

Sloopy Droopy Variant

In the post today was a nice wee package! One Sloopy Droopy variant from the vise of John Weir... the exact pattern that took his 13lb Clare bass at the end of August... I'll be tying a few of these over the next week if I have a chance in order to hook up some late stayers! Thank you John!

Clare Bass - 13lb bass on a Bug-Bond finished fly

At the beginning of September I posted about having caught my first Devon bass on the fly... I was chuffed! I then got an email from Bug-Bond user John Weir who lives in Ireland... not being boastful at all but wanting to share his success John gave me the link to his blog; and then said the fly contained Bug-Bond.

I opened the link which I'd actually seen a day or so earlier as Nick Hart had alerted the capture to me... all I can say is this fish is stunning and it is the fish of a lifetime... I guess the thing that will keep John going and many more of us is that there must be 20lb+ fish knocking around. Perhaps it also proves that bigger fish do eat bigger flies... it certainly didn't diminish my captures but increased my resolve to catch bigger fish!

The fish was taken on a mini Sloopy Droopy variant (original pattern by Joseph Manette)... a full step by step can be found on Andy Elliott's blog Chasing Silver,,, however, the fly that took the fish was tied by John.

I'd like to thank John for allowing me to share this significant achievement will you, his full account can be found in his blog Clare Bass

Congratulations John!

Casting at Shadows...

Yesterday I bought a copy of the "Casting at Shadows" DVD and today it arrived at my desk...

It is a record of Chris Cook's trip of a lifetime to Christmas Island. The introduction sets the pace of life in the Christmas Islands and is a bonus as some film makers concentrate on the sport and omit the environment they are filming in. As I watched the film I was immediately struck by the style of filming; Ben Marlow & Bradley Lucas have given us the quintessential Englishman (Chris Crook) with almost an air of Anthony Minghella's "The English Patient" as Chris stalks the flats. There is no whooping and hollering... Chris comes across as a quietly confident angler and the results speak for themselves... great bonefish come to hand, however, the film does get across the heat & frustration that flats fishing can provide at times.

The pace of the film increases as Chris hooks into a Bluefin Trevally and then on an incoming tide lands a GT of above average proportions. We then go offshore and get to call sharks! See and believe... One shark landed and Chris then hooks into a leviathan... a 3 hour fight with potentially a record breaking fly caught yellow fin tuna. There is no thrash heavy metal music in this film... if there was then I missed it as I was fixed on the fight with the tuna!

If you ever wanted a video of your own fishing trip this would be it... so many of us don't get the photos, don't get the video and would desperately love to fish this type of environment.

Bonus features included a slideshow of the fish caught - some of which never made the main feature but are no less impressive. There is also an interesting piece on the Christmas Island H bomb testing...

A very broad offering linked with good filming that will appeal to many... and if you are considering this trip of a lifetime I think watching this will seal the deal for you...

By clicking the image above you will be taken to Chris's site where you can purchase the film in DVD or BluRay format.

BUG-BOND in "Hatches" Fall 2011 Edition

Congratulations to Bug-Bond Pro-Tying Team member Rune Stokkebekk of Norway for his successful submission to Hatches Magazine... I'd recommend getting your own copy of Hatches to see first hand Rune's excellent article and tying sequences that includes Bug-Bond. Well done Rune!

Basstastic Devon!

2 years ago I caught my first bass (4lbs but the size was immaterial!) it was on the lure and although it was one of those significant firsts it wasn’t the goal I was looking for… it really had to be on the fly! Through various commitments I have had to wait until this year to connect.

If I turn the clock back 12 months I found myself in Devon for a long weekend with my wife… an urge to fish and  tip off saw me at a mark VERY early one morning… the result was a blank.

Fast forward to last weekend… Devon for a week… and I fished 4 separate marks on 5 occasions. It was last year’s mark that was fished twice… the result was 1 fish on day 1 and 4 on day 2! Result!

The key word is “watch”… Yes, watch what is going on around you, swirls or bait fish moving, they are all tell-tale signs of movement from under the surface of the water… cast and retrieve… steady retrieve… stop and retrieve… feel the take and the shrimp fly claims its fish.  Interestingly I preferred not to match the hatch but give the offering of the slower shrimp… would I have had more hits using a match?

The biggest fish was estimated to be 26.5cm… not big but it gets me off the blocks and I know what I’ll be concentrating on tying more of! Oh the Bug-Bond treated fly lasted longer on the back casts clicking on the rock!

A cluster of creations from Fabrizio!

Fabrizio kindly agreed to send me some flies build with Bug-Bond to photograph... his flies like many tied by the top fly tyers look great in photographs but when you have them in the palm of your hand... they are simply stunning. These flies may feature in Bug-Bond adverts over the next little while but I thought I would just share the group with you...

"Phrom the Bunker of the Phly Welder"

In a land where the letter F is replaced by its phonetic friend Ph (why else is phonetic spelt the way it is!) I have to include two links which give access to a compendium of Phly Welding put together by Pete Gray on the forums of Sexyloops and Globalflyfisher. Love it or hate it Pete has started something... maybe the guys who sell thread and make bobbin holders may want to call him a heretic... but surely this is merely an extension of innovation which all fly tyers hold dear (sorry Phly Tyer)... perhaps Pete should be inducted into the Phly Tying Hall of Phame!

Someone out there should give him a book deal, as well as invites to international fly fairs and perhaps even an invite or two for after dinner speaking!

As ever Pete thanks for sharing...

Fish heads Gaja style...

Fabrizio Gajardoni has been making his fish heads in epoxy since 2005... he has now turned his attention to making them with Bug-Bond... he says "I tie saltwater flies with my Gaja's Fish Head since 2005, now with Bug-Bond is so fast do this head......."

I think you'll agree that these are stunning little works of art!

Rune Stokkebekk (Norway) from Guideline joins the BUG-BOND™ Team!

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Rune Stokkebekk from Norway has joined the BUG-BOND™ Pro-Tying Team. I've corresponded with Rune for quite a while now and I felt that as the interest in Scandinavia is increasing we needed to increase the team in that part of Europe... I won't bore you with futile scribblings I'll let Rune tell his story... BUT do watch out for Rune's video's on the net...

"I have been a fly fisherman since I was 14 (in 1988). A friend of mine got this fly tying kit for Christmas and it looked like a nice thing to do. At that time fishing was not a big hobby, skateboarding and skiing was the thing. But our family holidays often went north to the mountains which does not have much asphalt for skating. So I had to do something else, fishing it was. The first years of my fly fishing "career" I fished with worms and fly. As soon as I had fish on the worm I switched to the fly (the day was saved). So it went for a few years until I decided to let the worm stay in the ground and do a serious attempt to learn fly fishing for real. Since I was 18 I have been a dedicated fly fisherman.

I started to tie flies after books and articles in magazines and my youth heroes was persons like Staffan Lindstrøm, Lennart Bergqvist and Pål Krogvold. They are still my heroes in fly fishing and I am grateful of all the knowledge they have passed on to other fishermen.

I live in the south eastern part of Norway. At home most of my fishing is done in large and smaller lakes. After a couple of months I get tired of this and have to seek up running water. I spend 2-3 weeks fishing in rivers each year. The Norwegian winter is very long, a good cure is to take a short flight to Ireland. I have been over there every year since 2003. I love the great western lakes!

Fly fishing has become my profession too. I started to work for Guideline in 2006 and still do. I have my own website as well the address is and it have been there since 2000. I frequently write articles on fly tying for Norwegian magazines."

Welcome aboard Rune!

Peeete's Phlyz... more from the Penguin

I received an email last week from my pal Pete Gray in the US... Pete has taken a break from fishing to tie up some eels using some lateral scales from Bear's Den (Ma) and encapsulating with
BUG-BOND™ Original and curing it with the all new BUG-BOND™ Professional UV curing light to give an excellent Tack-Free finish (no overcoat required)... I think the results speak for themselves... these Phlyz are very cool! Just add stripers!

New Team Members and a Workstation...

The BUG-BOND team increase by two at the BFFI... I'm pleased to announce that Skúli Kristinsson (Iceland) and Paul van den Driesche (Netherlands) have joined the Pro-Tying team. You couldn't have two very different fly tyers... both tyers produce excellent flies. Paul is well known for his realistic flies whilst Skúli's rows of immaculate salmon flies are legend!

At the BFFI Chris Reed set my Regal Vise on a workstation he made for me with a matching flystand... the brass hardware is courtesy of Riny Sluiter. If you want a workstation making contact Chris by emailing him direct at I think you'll agree the workmanship is fantastic!

A Rogue Angel, the Lakes and a first on the fly!!

I have such a lot to blog at the moment but you'll have to bare with me on this one... A rare weekend away with Janet (my wife) and one where I managed to get her to agree to fishing with me! Now it either goes horribly wrong or goes incredibly right... lets just say a few things fell into place.

Having decided where I wanted to fish we fished some place else as we had an access problem... I was the only one with waders! Short straw in place I scouted the water from behind high grasses... small trout fry shoals and there was a pike suspended in the gin clear water close by. I moved Janet to a different piece of bank and had her cast the fly rod for the first time... now ideally we would have done practice on a lawn. However, this was a "fait accompli" situation where it was learn on the job. Janet was casting... not pretty but doing the job! We'll work on technique with a lesson or two in the near future. I placed Janet by the lily pads and I moved up river to cast a line and quite soon I had an excited "what do I do now?" with foaming water at her feet. We netted a lovely fish that fought hard but was brought to the net quickly. Janet didn't wish to have her photo with the fish so your guide did the honours!

This was a special fish as I wanted Janet to have the honours in getting fish 50 on the BUG-BOND rod and it was her first fish on the fly as well. I was really pleased for her... it was a great start to the day!

We then moved down stream where we swapped a floating line on the BUG-BOND rod with the flashtail whistler for the Loomis with a Rio Striped Bass line and a Jonny King built Kinky Muddler... I put her on another mark and went to sort out my rod... I hadn't even touched the rod and I heard "I've got another!"... after a short fight the fish came to the net... it was now Girls 2 to Boys 0! I regained some honour by hooking and landing a fish soon after...

We cast some more dropping a couple of fish but called it a day wanting to ensure Janet enjoyed the day... I think she did!

I recall an e-conversation with K8 Taylor from the Rogue Angels blog where I said that I wanted Janet to experience what I do and K8 I did it... maybe took me a bit longer but we got there in the end. Another Rogue Angel is born?

PS fish are shown in reverse order... bottom image is Janet's first fish!

BFFI and BUG-BOND™ Sky TV debut!

It’s been a week since the BFFI (British Fly Fair International)… and I’ve hardly had time to reflect fully on the weekend. BUT it was an excellent weekend. It is always good to catch up with friends and make new ones along the way and this was the first show that BUG-BOND™ had retailers in attendance. Pat Stevens of FlyTek and Neil Anderson of Angus Angling were flying the BUG-BOND™ flag and fly it well, they did. Both retailers sold out of their stock and also the reserve stock, the new BUG-BOND™ Professional UV light was introduced into the equation (the new light was an absolute knockout and really does set the benchmark in affordable high quality curing lights!). Only one bottle of BUG-BOND™ Lite from the reserve stock was left… credit also has to go to Ian Christie of Flybox who was knocking out his BUG-BOND™ buzzers on Neil’s stand like he was shelling peas!

The BUG-BOND™ Pro-Tying team was out in force and they were supported by a growing number of fly-tyers both on and off the main tying area using BUG-BOND™ (I am grateful to them for their continued support). I am also pleased to announce that Skúli Kristinsson and Paul van den Driesche have joined the team. Skúli is famous for his racks of salmon flies that in their boxes look like vast regiments of identical soldiers without a hair out of place. Paul on the other hand ties fantastic realistic flies… he presented me with a fishable wasp that was so realistic it flew away from Pat Steven’s FlyTek display stand! Paul thankfully tied me a second wasp… So a word to the disappearing wasp… “You are sorely missed… Pat will be at Scone and at Blenheim over the coming months so if you feel like taking up residence in your fly clip we’d be happy to see you!”

There are times when you are taken by complete surprise and I had two such occasions at the BFFI… one of the most revered areas of fly tying has to be the classic salmon fly and I was amazed when Bruno Pimpanini showed me a classic fly tied using BUG-BOND™… I had to have one of his flies and it will be framed and take pride of place on my wall.

The other surprise was from Chris Reed; Chris ties fantastic flies, however his main job is that of a cabinet maker. We’d talked about a tying station for a while and at the show he presented me with a fantastic tying stand for my vise and a matching fly stand. The brass holder for the vise is from Riny Sluiter… I cannot describe how well made it is and if you’d like a stand making let me know and I’ll pass your details on to Chris… it oozes quality! I might regret that I didn’t buy one of Riny’s new tube fly heads for the Regal… Riny, I’ll see you in Galway!

I have to thank Chris Sandford for giving me feedback on the flyers, banners and the new Pro-Tying team badges… they look fab in the flesh and stand out well in the photos of the show… they also did well at SIM in Italy with Fabrizio Gajardoni!

This week ended well with friend Hywel Morgan being interviewed by Keith Arthur on “Tight Lines” the weekly fishing programme on Sky TV. Thanks to Hywel & Keith for enabling BUG-BOND™ to have its first airing on television. This may be the first time that a UV cure acrylic for fly tying has been demonstrated on TV (certainly in the UK)… who knows! Click here for access to the podcast!

With a lot of help, support and acknowledgement from friends, customers and the tackle trade, BUG-BOND™ is fast becoming synonymous with fly-tying…

"BUG-BOND™ Professional" THE UV light!

Straight off the production line and onto the shelf is a new addition to the BUG-BOND™ family!

BUG-BOND™ Professional is a new single emitter UV light that will appeal to the fly-tying fanatic, semi-commercial and commercial tyer. This is possibly the sleekest, smartest, smallest and cheapest to run UV light for curing UV cure resin available.

The BUG-BOND™ Professional UV curing light:
  • Utilises a Cree single UV emitter that provides consistent curing
  • Uses a single AA power cell. Tests have been conducted using NiMH rechargeable batteries and excellent results have been achieved. It will work equally as well with alkaline batteries if required.
  • Is constructed of aircraft grade aluminium and anodised to a Type III specification
  • Weighs in at a measly 74g, against the 12 UV LED light at 104g and (the now discontinued) Nightsearcher at 152g. These are weights taken with batteries included.
  • Is imported by Edwards Bonding Solutions who is the owner, designer and developer of BUG-BOND™ the first tack-free cure resin for fly-tying.

Although committed to providing a cost effective solution to enable the majority of fly-tyers to access the benefits of BUG-BOND™ I also have a commitment to produce a replacement for the acclaimed Nightsearcher that many tyers on the show circuit use. The ability to power a high quality light with a readily available and inexpensive power cell in most countries will give customers outside the UK and those who travel the confidence that they can cure BUG-BOND™ wherever they might be on the globe! Link this with the fact that most rechargeable packs of AA batteries are sold in units of 4 batteries this will provide the fly-tyer with an almost constant supply of UV light that will cure BUG-BOND™.

I am confident that the introduction of the BUG-BOND™ Professional UV curing light will keep the BUG-BOND™ UV cure resin family at the forefront of UV resin development for the fly-tyer and rod builder alike.

The BUG-BOND™ Professional will be available to view at the British Fly Fair International 2011 at Stafford Show Ground, UK during the weekend 18th & 19th June. It will then be available to retailers with effect from 20th June.
