Just tried some CCG for the first time this morning as I was putting the finishing touches on my humble submissions for the streamer swap. What an EXCELLENT product! While I had gone so far as to buy a turning wheel at one time (that I returned because it broke out of the box), I never got into epoxy. However, this stuff is so easy that even I can use it.

So is there anything I need to do to clean the applicator tips? Just sit them upright so any residue drains out?

Thanks.

Flash the light on the excess on the tip and it hardens and seals the end. That's what the Goo Guy did anyhow.
I'm about to order my first batch but which type I have no idea.

I got one of each at the show. So far, I have used the hydro, which seems to be excellent for finishing off a Clouser. (The hydro comes in a bottle rather than a syringe). Not sure which version will get the most use, but the hydro has great versatility for a wide variety of the flies I like to tie. I will probably use some of the thicker versions when I venture into salt water patterns.

I've used several drops of the Hydro as head cement. It seems to work well, but I haven't tested any of the flies for durability yet. Maybe this week on the Smith....

Clean uncured CCG with 70% isopropyl alcohol or 60% hand sanitizer.

I used to visit this BB every day but have not been on in a while. Anyway. i'm back for a spell.

Here's a few CCG flies I've tied.

I also sell 2 types of aftermarket UV flashlights for the UV acrylics like CCG. The standard CCG beam is on the left, but I like the more powerful light on the right, It cures CCG literally in seconds. Both lights are discounted. PM me if you are interested.

Silver ... Damn good ties. I especially like the October Caddis larva. Now if I could just teach you to dub with cat hair :roll:

Tom good lookin' squid. But when do you have time to go to the salt and throw that stuff or is it a contract tie for one of your salty friends ?
