Most of us always have a tube of super glue but without hesitation, the Avid Angler Solutions Fishing Glue is some of the best I have ever used. You can buy a cheap tube at the local dollar store but it will dry out after just a few uses. This glue is a lot different than that, though. The special cap keeps it airtight and I have one bottle that is about a year old that’s as good as the day I got it. It dispenses perfectly and it only takes a small amount to glue rod tips, guides, plastics and a swimbait head onto a swimbait and it holds like iron. I also glue braid at the knot with it and have yet to have it fail. I really like the consistency of this product; it’s not too stiff or too runny.
I use the glue on everything in the office, shop and on the road too. Since I work on boats all the time as a hobby, it really comes in handy there as well. It can also be a great bandage if you get a paper cut and I use it to repair plastic parts and latches, too. The kit comes with the glue, as mentioned earlier, but I would suggest having a few extra bottles. I like to keep one in the shop, one in my tow vehicle and one in the boat just to make sure you will have it when you need it.
I have also used the Avid Angler Solutions Chartreuse Marker constantly for about a year and it’s still going strong. That says a lot as I mark just about every bait I put in the water and it spares the mess of a bottle of dye that no matter how careful you are, always seems to drip on your boat.
For those who bank fish, the kit fits great in your backpack and provides peace of mind in the event something needs tightened or repaired.
