Built for more and bigger bugs.
The Umpqua Powder Keg Floatant is over twice the size as standard bottles of dry shake to accommodate your bigger dry fly patterns or for those epic days when the top-water action doesn't stop.

Perfect for Big Dries!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Dry shake is great for all dry flies, but this jumbo size is a must have if you fish natural hair patterns in bigger size 8 and up flies like deer hair bodies, big hoppers, Chernobyls, or cicadas. Using the powder keg is also better than using the regular size dry shake which can pull out the dry shake material in the smaller regular size dry shake version. The greater size also makes it easier to dry other smaller dry flies as well given the larger area inside the container and the greater volume of dry shake material. I'll be switching to these for all my dry shake needs going forward. Hoping they add the dark dry shake for the powder keg size as well.
Works like a charm

This has worked really well for me, keeping flies afloat even after hooking a few fish. It seems a bit expensive for what it is, but I suspect it's going to last me a while.
