    If you insist on using a UV Resin, use a UV Blue Laser Pen, cheapest and the most reliable results every time. Get a good set of rechargeable batteries and keep them charged. This is the only way to get consistent results with any UV resin but there will still be rubber tackiness to the touch. Even using a nail lamp will leave the rubber tack to them.

    But, let's face it, unless your tying one fly or plan on using the fly immediately, then there's not much need for resin to be used. Even when it is used, you have to coat them in Hard as Nails or Varnish just to keep the shine. So what's the point of resin in the first place if you have to varnish them?

    Over the years I've tried many and always returned to plain, fine, Cellire Varnish from Veniards.

    thats really interesting.

    Ive been using hard as nails, 5 coats, which isn't a problem however I'm finding its not very resilient and after 2-5 fish the fly has had it.

    I had hoped the uv resin would be tougher?
