Video: How to Keep Your Superglue from Going Bad

Last year, we launched a new series of videos called “One-Minute Fly-Tying Tips and Techniques” from Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions. Each video will teach a single tying skill, from the most basic to the advanced. Ultimately, the series will serve as a sort of encyclopedia of tying skills that will be a valuable resource for anyone who sits down at a vise to create a fly.

Superglue, and all its variants, is extremely useful in fly tying, but the bottles it comes in tend to stick shut over time or the glue itself starts to harden. In this video, Tim shows you an easy solution that will save you time, money, and frustration.

  1. As a contractor I buy large bottles of super glue, good advise! Also keep the glue in the refrigerator.
    Vaseline and WD-40 work well on the threads.

    1. I use Vaseline on the threads too, and I know Tim kept a large jar handy when he used his fanny pack
      but I think he moved on to a sling. I’ll try the wax next time since it’s not as messy 🙂
