New items I
"New Shit" water based high gloss lacquer
for coating fly heads and EZ Body's flex
Coastal Fly Rodder's unique
method for attaching tape eyes. The method
involves attaching a small tape eye
off-centered on a glue dot (www.gluedots.com)
and then adding colored foil to the
remaining uncovered section. The glue dots
appear to be very effective at adhering to
deer hair. Glue dots average about
$4.00/300. Also a G.Loomis representative
mentioned a series of two-handed 11' rods
would be available shortly. These rods are
apparently sweet casting rods and may be
additions to the current Cross Current
series. Lastly, Simms has recently marketed
their Elmer Fudd Goretex Extreme hat
The Fly Shop, cost $49.95.
