Default Re: Dry Fly Floatant recommendations?

Thanks Waterborn! I've heard of "Frogs Fanny", but haven't used it yet. Do you know how it compares to the Shimazaki Dry Shake? I have a bottle of that I got late last season and used it briefly. It doesn't have a brush, just a large opening to dip the fly in while attached to the tippet.

I've also used a silcone paste - heavier than the usual floatants, and I've used a clear liquid. The paste seems to mat the hackle - probably from using too much, and the liquid doesn't seem to last more than a few casts.

I'll try some Frogs Fanny and see how that works...
