Went back and looked at all the flies in this post again. :cool How many coats of cement on those heads? Like five coats of Hard as Nails I'm guessing? These are your flies for show right? You don't really fish these? These are going in a shadow box right?

At least three coats. Hard as Nails and another cement called Cellaire. And yes I do fish them.
