I agree with flyguy7flyguy7 said:I disagree. Floatant makes dries float a lot longer on any water type. I usually treat my dries initially with just a SMALL amount of loon Aquel and when it finally becomes waterlogged I use a desicant such as Frogs Fanny to suck the water out of the dry. The desicant is also great for CDC patterns.
I am going to have to try that out. I hate that applicator that comes with Frog's Fanny. Seems like I waste 3/4 of the bottle by pulling that little brush out and then contents flying all over the place with just the slightest breeze. Thanks.flyguy7 said:I agree with what Cheech said. Aquel stays relatively temperature stable but Gink tends to get runny when its hot outside or too thick to squeeze out of the bottle when its cold outside. Shimazaki shake work ok but nothing special. For a desicant I'll let ya in on my favorite set up. Empty some, but not all of the crystals out of a container of Loon Top Ride then mix 50% of a bottle of Frogs Fanny in there. The heavy top ride crystals work the light frogs fanny into the fly really well and you don't have to mess with the applicator brush.
