After reading about Bob Popovics conversion from epoxy to Tuffleye from epoxy , I thought that I would give it a try myself. The problem with Epoxy , particularly 5 Minute epoxy is that yellows giving the tie a dirty look after a period of time. Some of the flies that I tied last year have already yellowed giving them an extremely old look. Tuffleye is set by exposing in to an UV light. It sets in about 15 seconds of exposure to the light. However, you can spend as much as you like working the Tuffleye before setting it. Here are some flies that I finished.
