Tying Pat's Rubber Legs

Anyone that knows me, knows that I rarely use head cement or UV resins on my flies, and in most cases only to coat a body, preferring to let the thread bind the materials to the hook shank.  And now along comes this video where Tim uses UV resin to bind the rubber legs to the hook shank, making what until now has been a pain in the ass process, a relative piece of cake.  Seriously, he knocks this one out of the park.  If you have ever tied one of these nymphs, you know that tying in the legs can be frustrating, as the legs "have a mind of their own".   Now it should be a lot easier. I'll be giving this a try when I tie my rubber leg stone nymphs for my Montana trip next month.  Nice work, Tim!

Sharpen your hooks!
