Fly Head Cement
Developed and produced exclusively for Wapsi, our traditional lacquer based head cement has been a favorite among fly tyers for years. Wapsi Fly Head Cement is quick drying and deep penetrating with minimal build up. The advantages of quick drying cement are less chance of imparting a fingerprint on the head of the finished fly, and the ability to apply several thin coats of cement to the head for maximum durability.
Fly tyers who like a nice, tight head on their flies often choose this cement for its minimal build up. This is particularly an asset to fly tyers who tie small trout flies.
The thickness of the cement can be easily adjusted by simply leaving the top off the jar for a short period of time (thickening it through evaporation) or adding a small amount of Wapsi Fly Head Cement Thinner. Like all cements that harden by evaporation eventually the cement will start to thicken in the jar as a result of repeated opening and closing of the bottle. When this happens simply add some thinner to bring it back to the desired consistency. This can be done time and time again and as a result this cement can last a very long time on your fly tying bench.
