How to Make the Fly Float

This stuff is as good as any product sold specifically for dry fly fishing.  I've been using it for three months now with good results.  The bottle it comes in is a pump action spray bottle so useless for flies.  No matter.  Off with the lid and pour out 10ml into an old Permafloat bottle or similar and put that in your pocket or bag.  When you've tied on your fly just shake your little bottle, open it and dunk your fly in the liquid.  Blow or false cast your fly until it is dry and go dry fly fishing with it.  150ml costs the same as 10ml of branded dry fly floatant...  which is music to a tight fisted Yorkshireman's ears!
