    Top Notch

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This Shimazaki Dry Shake by Umpqua is pretty unbelievable compared to all other dry shakes. I pair it with the Shimazaki Dry Shake Liquid and it's a combo that cannot be beaten. Unfortunately we do not carry the liquid version.. But the liquid dry shake is unreal an keeps your fly afloat for such a long length of time. Once my fly does start to sink a bit is when I then dip it in this Shimazaki Dry Shake because it dries it back out and absorbs most of the water from the fly. Overall, pretty awesome combo to have out there on the water and I never leave home without either of them. Would highly recommend over all other floatants.

    Easy and Effective

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    A fly fishing mentor I met in Yellowstone introduced me to this and I swear by it now. I start off treating my dries with one of the liquid/paste floatants right out of the box and then apply this. Nothing I have found makes a fly float higher and it is very easy to use. Of course you have to reapply occasionally throughout the day but that is to be expected. I don't leave for a fishing trip without it.

    Easy and Effective

    Quality Product

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Application is a breeze. Pop the top, drop it in and shake!Don't be too hard on the lid though. I've had the hinge snap and my lid when floating down the river. Other than that, it's a great product!

    Must Have! Much better than frogs fanny!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is seriously a Must Have for the fly vest! I Get one of these every season to make it through dry fly hatches. But you must make sure you get a liquid floatant such as (gink) it will help the fly stay afloat much longer, when the fly gets wet i drop it in the shake bottle, The Shimazaki is much better than the Frog's Fanny Floatant. The difference is the Frog's Fanny has an applicator (like nail polish) and you lose so much more of the Floatant while trying to apply it. The Shimazaki allows you to just drop the fly in shake, pull it out, blow it off and your ready to go.

    Must Have! Much better than frogs fanny!

    High and dry.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is an essential when dry fly fishing. Keeps your fly riding high in the water and is great at quickly drying your fly out after you've landed a fish with it.

    Must Have for the Dry Fly Action

      Simple and effective shake to get your dry fly floating on top of the aqua.

      Great value for you $ and from a solid brand. A must have addition for fishing those glorious dry flies.

      Best Dry Fly Floatant

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Get one of these a season to make it through dry fly hatches. The Shimazaki is much better than the Frog's Fanny Floatant. The difference is the Frog's Fanny has an applicator (like nail polish) and you lose much of the floatant in trying to apply it. The Shimazaki allows you to just drop the fly in and shake. Much better and actually gets your flies dry. There is also a dark Shimazaki in grey-black that is just as good if you want to darken a fly to match the hatch. I usually have both on the water.

      Fly baby Fly!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      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

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      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.

      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.
