hI do not remember if, in his latest book, Bob Popovics uses Alcohol or Acetone, but afterward he coates with Hard as Nails.  I use acetone and ten coat with Hard as Nails, which restores shine to surface..

Bobby and I are using Tuffleye CORE, which is sold in the only Ocean County B&T that still sells such things for fly tying.  Others might sell things like bucktail and strung hackles, but do not get into the "nuts and bolts" of tying. Whenever possible, I purchase from the local shops.  Tuffleye actually has a specific Top Coat, but Hard as Nails is somewhat more economical.  I ask my wife to buy it - saves on weird looks and extended explanations. :p

I saw an interesting UV light trick on youtube, surround the fly with prism paper in a tube shape, does two things, keeps the uv light away from your eyes and bounces the light around inside the tube
