Re: Head cement vs. no head cement.
What kind of head cement are you using? The water based stuff in the jar, the non-water based stuff in a jar, or the squeeze bottle thingy with the needle dropper.
A buddy at work said to get the needle dropper. He was right. I don't use it all the time, but it sure is better than messing with leaving the jar open and having it get gunky and stuff.
I use Zap-A-Gap for attaching some materials, and for tough heads on my kokanee flies, and also Hard As Nails.
They all have their uses. The guy who sold me my vise actually uses UV Wader Repair on his flies, with the nifty little UV light, of course, and it works great.
More importantly, SET THE HOOK!
I still say he married me because he took me ice fishing and I still wanted to go fishing with him again!
