Dry Fly Floatants

As part of the "From Vise to Water" series, in this episode, I discuss the various dry fly floatants that I use, specifically some used when pretreating and those applied on the water. Nothing is more frustrating than attempting to catch rising trout with a dry fly that won't float, thus I hope this video can be of benefit to all.

Thanks for viewing this YouTube fly fishing tutorial, and I encourage you to view my additional videos at the following website: http://www.troutandfeather.com

The Usual
Matt from theflypatch.com ties Fran Better's Usual. If you are familiar with the original recipe you'll notice that I tie the fly in a slightly different fashion and much buggier. I find it to be more effective but if you want a true copy than all you need to do is clean it up a bit.
