    Must Have Floatant

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The silicon paste floatant is a perfect pre-treatment (either on stream or the night before) for your flies.

    The dry shake is perfect for on stream treatment whereas the paste when used sparingly (don't mat the hackles) is a great way to get a fly keeping its original color. The white dry shake colors treated flies a powdery white color from the dry shake residue so the silicon paste floatant has some advantages in keeping a natural profile.

    I've found you can do one or the other but typically can't do both the paste and dry shake which tends to sink the fly faster and bind together the hackles.

    Still a must have for dry fly fishing.

    Float On Water

      Been a staple floatant for years and still works well. Better price than some of the other options out there too. Works in a wide variety of temps, including winter hatches. Is a heavier paste so can tend to mash delicate feathers (CDC) on some flies.

      This Aquel floatant is great for winter and summer. The temp doesn't affect the viscosity of the floatant nor its effectiveness. I use this on my terrestrials in the summer and and dries that I might end up pulling out in the winter.

      Last longer!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Always used Gink for years but when I needed to re-up unfortunately BC was out so thought I'd give this Loon a try. Well after tons of hours on the river I find myself using smaller amounts of this stuff and the fly staying up for longer! Make the switch and you'll see the difference!

      perfect for the price

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I'm new to Loon Outdoors products, but their Aquel Floatant has certainly made a good first impression. Firstly it seems up to the tast at hand, you can spend ridiculous amounts of money on floatant but this 5 dollar bottle may be all one needs. Some advice if I may... don't read and follow label directions. Rather than massaging the floatant into the hackles of your fly, a practice that will leave your lures misshapen over time, try instead place a drop on your forefinger and flicking it onto your fly. Would full heartedly endorse this little product.

      Floating Flies All Day

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is the first floatant I picked up and it works great. My flies stay on top of the water making it look more natural to the fish. I would recommend dropping the fly in the water before your first cast to remove the excess floatant. Overall, an awesome product. Highly recommended!

      Favorite floatant

        I am a huge fan of this stuff. I've used Gink for a long time and a friend recommended this when I ran out of the Gink. I tried it out and I instantly felt like my fly was floating for a longer amount of time. I usually will start a dried fly with this and after a few fish will start to use frogs fanny. Very good for the terrestrial and bigger stimulater patterns

        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.

          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!
