Clear Cure Goo Spoon Fly: Video Tutorial and Free Flies

Here’s a spoon fly video tutorial. This is the first of many fly tying installments that I, as well as others, will be posting on this site. The objective of these tutorials is to teach inexperienced or skilled fly tyers how to tie patterns that have produced good results for species of a specific area. Hopefully these tutorials give you insight on how to tie a specific pattern or spark up ideas that you can incorporate into your own flies.

In addition, there will be a fly giveaway associated with each tutorial for the subscribers of this site. To qualify all you have to do is click the little “sign me up” box on the homepage and subscribe to this blog and comment on this post and you’re registered. Or, if you’re already a subscriber all you have to do is comment on this post and you’re also entered. Your comment doesn’t have to be elaborate; it can be as simple as typing “in” or “sign me up”.

This week I’m going to be giving away a few spoon flies in a variety of colors like the ones shown in the video below. This contest starts today and ends next Thursday at midnight central time. I will only mail these flies to individuals residing in the lower 48.

Materials:
Mustad 34007 Size #2
Clear Cure Goo Thick
Pre-Cut Spoon Fly Templates
Meduim Size Bead Chain Eyes
Craft Fur
Krystal Hackle

  5. I’ve got a question about the Clear Cure Goo. I don’t tie enough flies to justify forking out $50 for the entire kit. Can I get by with just purchasing the goo and getting my own U.V. light (hhttp://www.amazon.com/LED-Violet-Blacklight-Flashlight-7301UV400/dp/B001VZC5LA/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1303419287&sr=8-4)? What goo should I get? Thin or Thick? Thanks

    • Sorry, the website won’t come up. Try googling this: 9 LED 400 nM UV Ultra Violet Blacklight Flashlight 3AAA, 7301UV400

      Yea, the kit is a little expensive but you only have to buy the light once. I’ve read that the light that CCG sells is made specifically for CCG and helps it cure correctly. I’ve tried other lights when I first bought CCG and it didn’t cure the material but I’m not sure if I was using a UV light.

      Any UV light should work to some degree but don’t know if it’s going to work correctly. I know sunlight also cures CCG so you have to be careful when working with CCG near direct sunlight. I would get thick if you plan on making spoons but thin is pretty useful too for other applications.
