Bug Bond Original
BUG-BOND™ Original: with the viscosity of a “runny honey” Original is the “go to” material for the general fly tyer. If you’ve never experienced light cured acrylics before, then this material should be the top of your shopping list… from shell backs or surf candies to buzzers. Use this material and you’ll wonder why you ever used epoxy or solvent based products.
Bug Bond Lite
BUG-BOND™ Lite: this material is much less viscous than Original and is close to a watery consistency or that of light engineering oil. Lite can be used to secure thread or bucktail part way through a tie to allow you to continue tying without building up a profile or use it as a varnish replacement. Use Lite alongside the BUG-BOND™ Professional UV Light for the finer applications.
Bug Bond UV light
To cure BUG-BOND™ a UV light of a specific wavelength is required. We currently supply a Professional UV powered by a single AA battery and an entry level Multi-UV LED light powered by 3x AAA batteries.
Since 1923 we have been supplying top quality fly tying materials to the world.
It all started in the early 1920’s when Mr Ernest and Frank Veniard started collecting feathers from London poultry markets for hat mounts and brooches. This in turn led to limited supplies for fly tyers. By the mid 1930’s The Veniard brothers produced there first fly Tying Catalogue. By the start of WWII the company already had a reputation for supplying top quality materials.
The late 40’s saw a big rise in the leisure industry this coupled with public access to trout fishing led to a boom period for the company. This lead to a shortage of home grown materials and forced the company to look overseas for supplies.
The 50’s 60’s saw the company continue to grow with weekly visits to the Fly tying factories of the midlands the norm.
There have been major changes since then with the arrival of synthetics, genetic hackles and specially designed tools. But through all this Veniard’s have and still remain one of the top fly tying suppliers in the world.
