A jumping off point for tying bitter-style shrimp for bonefish. Using Loon UV Fly Paint is a great way to build a quick, durable colorful head, as is illustrated here.

Love the fluorescing UV Finish. I used the Clear Hard head over it and gives a deeper gloss. Wasn't sure if i would use the black hard head that much. But I have used it a lot more than I thought I would. Love your produces.
I’m fairly new to fly tying and this stuff is a major confidence booster. Been using it for cress bug backs and coating some midges, and the flies just look (and work) better. You can trust Loon products and their customer service is nothin short of spot on. Thanks Loon Outdoors!
PS. Their bench lights, forceps, snips etc are all high quality and superb for the price. This is a company that wants to make an intimidating sport more accessible to all. applause for that!
I lied this mostly on top of some flash for wing casing. It’s worked great for me for stone flys in the past for steelhead, browns, and salmon! I’ve also been using it for tying perdigon’s and it’s great! 10 out of 10
But sparingly on the theory that underwater insects & etc. are not fluorescent over large areas, but sparingly are lit in a few anatomical spots, or features. I've had good luck targeting trout in small WA lakes & m anxious to do some "testing" for steelhead this season & winter.
This is a great product. Extremely fast processing and shipping
Great UV light, lightweight for carrying on trips for emergency repairs.
I stepped up to the Bench light from the Nano and glad I did. Quick and effective for UV tying and leader building. The Nano is great for the tackle bag, but the higher quality and more powerful Bench Light is a better tool for the tying desk. Spend the extra $, you won't be sorry. Always great service from Loon.
Great light. Cures very fast.
I really love my loon UV bench light, easy to use small compact and super powerful.
Great for fast curing. Really like the small size. Would highly recommend.
