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:

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
