Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Tackle -

Fulling Mill has been sup­ply­ing flies to fish­ers for decades and tests ma­te­ri­als on an in­dus­trial scale. It claims that its Glass UV Resin isn't tacky (slightly sticky) when set – un­like many ri­val prod­ucts. We can sup­port this claim: af­ter 20 sec­onds’ ex­po­sure to UV light the fin­ish is crys­tal clear, hard and not tacky. This is im­pres­sive, but there is a com­pro­mise: the resin is not thin and as such it is bet­ter suited to big­ger flies, such as fry pat­terns, salt­wa­ter bait­fish or pike flies. An ap­pli­ca­tor brush in the lid would be wel­come to give greater con­trol over the amount of resin you can ap­ply, en­abling you to spread it more thinly. In­stead, you must use a less-ef­fec­tive dub­bing nee­dle. Glass UV resin comes in a 20g bot­tle, with a noz­zle and lid. Con­tact: Fulling Mill stock­ists. Tel: 01293 778 600.
