Threadless Fly Tying

Post  Charlie G. on 11/24/2012, 5:45 pm

I saw a gentleman ( Peter Gray ) Fly Welding, as he calls it, at the Fly Tying Symposium that Handyman, JeffL and I attended.
Rather then use thread Pete holds feathers and other material on to the fly with UV light cured acrylics. I thought that looked pretty cool so I sat down today to give it a try.

I'm not sure of the durability of these flies. And it is tricky setting the fly materials just right on the hook shank. I cheated by wrapping the hook shank with body braid first.
These pictures are of my 2nd attempt at it. I think it came out ok unlike the 1st attempt.
The hook is a Gami SC15 #1







If you think it's easy give it a try one time lol!
The hardest part is keeping the whole process clean of excess acrylic. It can get messy if your not careful.
