Wapsi Fly Head Cement Water Base Price from 6.25 € View products

This cement is made with an environmentally friendly water base lacquer that is non-flammable, odorless, quick drying, and is non-yellowing (dries clear). It is excellent as an all-around fly tying cement. The thin viscosity of the cement allows it to penetrate the thread well and creates a very good bond. If you desire to slightly thin the cement even further it can be thinned as much as 10% by adding a tiny amount of water. Water based cements are at their best when used with synthetic materials such as foam, flash materials, and rubber legs which can actually disintegrate when they come into contact with the some solvents. If you happen to accidentally spill some on your desktop clean up is fast and easy – simply wipe off the spilled cement with a wet sponge or rag before it dries. Like other lacquers the product dries by evaporation and can be handled just minutes after application. Several coats can be added in succession to produce a glossy coat if desired. Full cure happens overnight and the product will not dissolve in the water once cured. HEAD CEMENT TIPS: (1) N...

HEAD CEMENT TIPS:

(1) Not all cements have the same viscosity coming out of the bottle. Do not hesitate to thin the cement to the desired viscosity. An eyedropper is a useful tool for dispensing thinner into your cement. Start by adding just a drop or two at a time until you are satisfied with the thickness of the cement.

(2) Fly Tying Cements usually dry due to evaporation. To prolong the life of your cements limit the amount of time that the bottle is open and add thinner to the cement as needed. Maintaining the viscosity of the cement will prolong its life.

(3) Add the correct thinner to your cement. For best results we suggest using the thinner recommended by the manufacturer of your cement. Failing to use the suggested thinner can lead to prolonged drying time, yellowing of the finish, excessive vapors, or a negative reaction between the cement and thinner.

(4) Use sparingly – most beginning fly tyers use more cement than is needed to do the job. The less cement you use the faster it will dry.

(5) Glass bottles with brush applicators or plastic squeeze bottle applicators with clog free applicator tips are a great convenience on the tying bench.

(6) If you use a bodkin (dubbing needle) to apply cement to the fly over time some residue will dry on the needle. To remove the residue, simply clean the needle by scouring it with steel wool. Our Terra Deluxe Bodkin Cleaner with Stand combines a bodkin, steel wool reservoir and steel wool all wrapped up in one tool.

AS WE APPROACH OUR 60TH YEAR IN BUSINESS, WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU A LITTLE WAPSI HISTORY.
In 1945, Lacey Gee of Independence, Iowa began a fly tying business. photo of Lacey GeeWith some financial help and encouragement from the owner of Wapsi Produce Company, Lacey established the Wapsi Fly Company. Previously, he had been employed by the poultry processing plant, which provided a ready source of feathers. That, along with incentive, imagination and a good deal of skill in fly tying, became the basis for his new business. The name, Wapsi, was a natural, as the buildings housing it were located on the banks of the Wapsipinicon River.
Wapsi has introduced many fly tying products: Lead Eyes, Wooly Bugger Marabou, Dyed Grizzly Marabou, Soft Tanned Rabbit Skins, Dyed Pheasant Skins, Mylar Cord, three sizes of Ultra Chenille, Razor Foam, Thin Skin, Foam Popper Bodies, Fly Tails, Sili Legs, and Hour Glass Eyes. Such high quality dubbings as Camel, Antron, Angora Goat and Superfine are all processed at Wapsi. Premo Deer Hair, Lead Free Wire and Lead Free Eyes are also Wapsi firsts.
Today, Wapsi fills 62,000 square feet with plans to continue expansion. Wapsi is pleased to be a part of a growing industry where we can count our competitors as friends.
Ann and Tom look forward to the future. Three of their sons, Karl, Joe, and Eric, are now vital parts of the business. They plan to continue to be a part of Wapsi as it grows and changes.
We are proud of these accomplishments and plan to continue working hard to bring quality materials and ideas to fly tyers. You are our inspiration and motivation.
