UV Tack Free Resins and tying chironomids

I’ve had a lot of questions about UV resins for coating chironomids. The product I use is the Deer Creek UV tack free resin out of the UK. It comes in regular and thin consistencies and I use the thin version. This product is probably available at some fly shops so check with your local shop. If not it can be ordered online through You will need a UV light or torch to set the resin. A few seconds of the light on the fly leaves a totally dry, glossy finnish making a durable fly with UV enahncement built right in. Lots of time to tie some patterns up before ice off.
