Fly baby Fly!

This guy is the best! keeps your fly afloat and dry and the fishies fall for it! I would add this on after some Gink as Louis recommends below! seriously with that combo you are set!

Works Great

This shake works great and helps keep the fly visible and dry. Highly recommend if you aren't using. As stated before, pair with some Gehrke's gink for best results.

My opinion is the same like the ones before me. I put the Gink or Loon gel first, let it dry a bit, and drop the fly into the shaker. I once forgot to bring the gel with me and it was pouring rain. The simulator got wet the second I took it out of the fly box. No problemo, dropped it into the bottle and shook it 3 times. And it floated high and dry even in the pouring rain.

Love this

Easy to use and wide mouth makes for an easy time drying a drenched fly. Combo this with gink and its good all day

Great Floatant.

While fishing dries I do pretty much the same thing every time. I put a liquid floatant on (such as gink) and let it sit for a few seconds. From there, I drop the fly into the shake bottle and give it a good shake. Dust the fly off and go fish! This is the absolute best way to keep dries floating high. From there, if it gets wet / starts sinking, I dab the fly dry on my shirt and drop it back into the dry shake.

This stuff is great. The shake bottle is a lot easier than some competitors with the brush. (Frogs Fanny)

High and dry

I love using this on my smaller dries that may not sit as high with a liquid floatant. A quick drop in the bottle shake shake shake and your ready to sit high and dry enticing those trout to hit it. Also works great on the larger dries, i will use this first on the big dries for a quick dry and then put some floatant on to ensure the right presentation for the big ones sipping on dry. If you need them to stay dry you can't go wrong with the Shimazaki.
