Aquaseal has been the fisherman’s choice of adhesive for years. It permanently repairs leaky waders, boots, boats and more. Heck, we even use it to coat knots from time to time! When operating lodges in remote areas of the world, Aquaseal is liquid gold as far as we’re concerned and we go through our share throughout the season.
However, with a six hour drying time, Aquaseal is not always the most convenient fix while out on the water. Sure, fixing a pinhole in your waders after a day of fishing and letting it dry over night is no big deal, but wouldn’t it be nice if someone came out with a product that dried instantly? Well, the kind folks at McNETT just sent us their latest product called Aquaseal UV, and its a game changer.
Just like original Aquaseal, Aquaseal UV dries clear, flexible, and permanent and get this.. It dries instantly! Just expose to sunlight for a few seconds and you’re good to go! Need to fix some gear in the dark? Zap it with a UV lamp (now marketed by several companies) for a few seconds instead. No more waiting until morning for your knots to dry or to use your favorite waders again. McNETT even recommends it to be used as a head cement as well!
As always, we don’t endorse products unless we believe in them, and Aquaseal UV is no exception. This is one of the best products we’ve seen in a while and it sure has made our lives a lot easier (or at least drier!). Pack a tube with you at all times out on the water and you’ll be ready for anything mother nature has to offer!
