For you timid fly tier's who try to limit being seen
in the women's cosmetic section at WalMart or Walgreen's,
I have some great news to report. Sally Hanson has some
new terrific products for you to try. Two that I want
to bring to your attention is Sally Hanson Hard as Nails
with Teflon Tuff, and Sally Hanson Chrome.
The Sally Hanson Hard as Nails Teflon Tuff is much thinner
than the original Sally Hanson Hard as Nails. It soaks
into and between the threads on the head of the flies.
Goodbye to those bottles of head cement that harden if
you look at them cross-eyed or you don't seal the cap
with a gorilla's grip.
The Sally Hanson Hard as Nails Chrome, is available in 27
different metallic colors and shades. This is great news
to those of you who use vinyl wraps for abdomens on nymphs.
Now you can coat the dressed hook with some Sally Hanson
Chrome, before wrapping the vinyl wrap. The vinyl will
give off an inner glow that was not possible before.
For you glass bead freaks, Sally Hanson Chrome is just
what you need also. Some have spent many hours at the
tying bench holding tiny glass beads in tweezers trying
to paint the inside of the bead with a coating of gold
paint, using a brush with one bristle. No more will
you have to peer thru those magnifying glasses straining
your eyesight, and having to forgo coffee to steady your
hands. Now you can just paint the hook shank with some
Sally Hanson Chrome prior to creating some nymphs using
clear glass beads.
So you do not have to get out those wigs and high heels
to go undercover to checkout the new Sally Hanson products.
Now if you will pardon me, these heels are killing me.
Please check out the Fly Tying Section, on the Bulletin Board, here at FAOL too.
