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 www.flymart.ca. 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.
