Orvis Ratings and Reviews


Make epoxy-type flies without the mess of mixing! A transparent, viscous adhesive gives flies a pliable, realistic feel. Ideal for saltwater flies. Special self-leveling formula completely prevents bubbles and drips. No need to rotate your drying flies. Flies can even be dipped, as it sets in a few seconds and will never peel, crack, or discolor. Excellent for covering doll eyes or flashy materials. Won't mask fish-attracting details. Recoating Softex softens it, allowing you to add more materials. This item cannot be shipped by air. Made in USA.

"I rated this 3 stars due to dry time and smell. I do like the ease of just dipping and drying. Works fine for me but for someone tying lots of flies it would take too long for drying."
