This blog will take off where the book "Unsinkable Dry Flies" left off, listing new and different ways to tie flies by attaching a air bubble to the hook. The flies displayed may be imitations of flies found in other reference materials or something completely unique. If you have a new idea email us, we will endeavor to post it on the Blog with your credit.

Soldering Iron Heat

When working with a soldering iron even some 15 watt units may be to hot to allow effective shrinking of the heat shrink as I recently discovered. To solve this problem use an electronic soldering station that allows for variable heat. The Elenco Electronic Soldering Station Model SL-5 is available on the web for under $35.00 with shipping. They recommend a 40 watt iron but I still use a 15 watt and it works just fine.
