Using Fred's Goo

Postby Emerson » Sun May 03, 2009 9:29 pm

Fred has developed a product called Goo. It is an alternative to epoxy. It works easily, quickly and with no smell, quick set up time and ease of application. It is sticky when it has hardened so you need to put some Hard As Nails or similar but for those of us that are non-commercial tiers..no problem. I have used it 3 ways so far..more details of how and what it is..later..

1. I call this the traditional way..just like epoxy. I put the Goo on the head of this Baja Tuna Tux...

2. I put the Goo on the abdomen of this nymph. It gives it durability, depth and a more 3 -D look

Up close look..

From a longer distance just to tell how small this fly really is..

3. This is my favorite way..I have made a mouse fly that did a great job in Alaska for rainbows...ask Hugh..it works! The only problem I had was the head gets weak and I tried different items....Goo works best

So where can one get this goo?

I hate epoxy, I mean I really hate it. Anything that is easier with less smell is a good product to me.

Yes..it is UV activated. I had purchased a Loon small light...way too small.. Fred has a nice light..it takes 3 AAA batteries...cures the stuff in a matter of a few ..like 3..minutes. It is well worth it!

The Loon stuff comes in that small tube..it works very well...Fred's is in a syringe and much easier to place exactly where you want it with very little mess..I am a messy person so it helps!
