My favorite floatant
Really easy to apply, I usually just use the little bit of excess that collects in the top of cap, so it feel like a bottle lasts forever. I like to drop the fly into the water at my feet before the first cast, as the excess from the application can sometimes create a bit of an oily slick on the water, and you don't want that when presenting a fly. I also use it for wool strike indicators.
Good quality floatant. Becareful that you might squeeze more than you choose out of the bottle.
Beginners Best Friend!
Don't start fishing without it! Will keep you sane as you learn to cast the proper way.
Put a small dab on the fly and massage it on, then spread any excess on your tippet!
Makes a big difference.
This stuff helps keep dry flies floating very well. Need some re-application sometimes but it does the job.
This works pretty well on some of the larger fly's that I have used. It seems to stay on quite well. For small fly's I still prefer a dry floatant.
For a silicone floatant, Aquel does the job. It's good for bigger bushy dries and is cool on the environment too. Recommend for those that aren't using CDC in their flies.
