FT02 Featured Flies Using UV Resin
Workshop

Presenter(s):  Jerry Coviello

Description:  This is a six-week workshop running every Tuesday from 9/21/2021 through 11/2/2021, 8:00 to 10:00 PM ET.  When UV resins first came out for fly tying, Jerry Coviello want to give it a try.  There were epoxy flies he wanted to tie but never did because he didn't want to deal with the wait, mess, and curing of epoxy.  He saw vises from tiers that used epoxy to tie their saltwater flies and the mess it made on the vise jaws and base.  UV resins eliminated the wait and some of the mess.  Here is an epoxy substitute that dried in seconds.

His first attempt was tying an Ultra Shrimp, the shellback of the shrimp used UV Resin.  What helped was the different viscosities, Thin, Thick, and Flex UV Resins, for different applications.  The think was perfect for this fly.  After playing with it, he was completely satisfied with the results.

Jerry picked a series of flies that use the different viscosities that Solarez manufactures.

Workshop

Presenter(s):  Jerry Coviello

Description:  This is a six-week workshop running every Tuesday from 9/21/2021 through 11/2/2021, 8:00 to 10:00 PM ET.  When UV resins first came out for fly tying, Jerry Coviello want to give it a try.  There were epoxy flies he wanted to tie but never did because he didn't want to deal with the wait, mess, and curing of epoxy.  He saw vises from tiers that used epoxy to tie their saltwater flies and the mess it made on the vise jaws and base.  UV resins eliminated the wait and some of the mess.  Here is an epoxy substitute that dried in seconds.

His first attempt was tying an Ultra Shrimp, the shellback of the shrimp used UV Resin.  What helped was the different viscosities, Thin, Thick, and Flex UV Resins, for different applications.  The think was perfect for this fly.  After playing with it, he was completely satisfied with the results.

Jerry picked a series of flies that use the different viscosities that Solarez manufactures.

Description:  The TLF soft-hackle style dry fly started over 11 years ago and has evolved over time into what you see here.

The size or the thorax hackle can vary depending on what you see on the water, so match your hatch as far as body and hackle color. He has found these flies will bring fish up before a hatch really gets going and do very well after a hatch as ended. Jerry's  challenge to you is take your best dry fly tail and body and then build the rest of fly like the dressing below; put in a thorax, the thorax hackle and a soft-hackle feather, and lets see what happens.

FTD44 Woven Body Caddis Larva
Tying Demonstration

Presenter(s):  Jerry Coviello

Description:  Jerry Coviello will show how to weave the Woven Body Caddis Larva.  He does not know if having a two-toned body makes a difference when fishing nymphs, but some fly anglers swear that it works as a trigger to attract fish.  Jerry likes how it looks, and the natural insect does not have one color but a few different shades.  This fly will sink quickly and can be used for high stick nymphing in pocket water.
