Boil Up.

 A simple bath.

 Make sure your glue oozes out!

 Old school.

 It works well.

 Old kiln Kyushu Japan.


Over the winter I've been playing around with net building. I have been using Oak and Red Beech. It's a good contrast. Now I have made a couple of complete nets, it's back to the start to design a new shape and frame for wrapping the timber around. The first time I used epoxy resin, it's bloody messy stuff and involves mixing two separate parts. That may sound simple, but for someone who catches every piece of greenery on the river bank when fly casting, a real challenge. I found Titebond III from the states and this is much easier to use. It's a single application, water resistant glue.
