Loon Outdoors~The Best Water Based Head Finish & Non-Toxic


For a long time I've been looking for the best all around fly tying head cement. After using Loon's Water Based Head Finish I've found that it does everything I need in a highly controllable non-toxic solution. It's viscosity is perfect for seeping into wraps. The finish dries flexible but NOT rubbery. If you tie a lot of dries it's an exceptional marriage of uses such as hitting parachute posts with horizontal hackle collars, locking in wings, setting splayed tailing fibers, wetting threads on micro patterns, and controlling the amount of head coverage you need.


This stuff is truly amazing. After years of using cyno-glues that spew vapors and dry burning the materials in the process this glue is literally a breath of fresh air. Years of head cement drying up and “gooing out”, having to thin glues, scraping dubbing needles, etc...all this fuss was a real pain in the butt. This stuff just wipes up with water when it's still wet. When dry the consistency of Loon's Water-Based Head Finish is like a harder version of silicone but crystal clear and of course non-toxic. It's called “head Finish” but it really does it all. The big bonus...it has absolutely no smell and I do not need to worry about my Canaries dropping dead or running to the Doctor with a sinus infection after tying a box of flies! Kudos Loon Outdoors.
