Makes Flies Negatively bouyant
Reviewer: A viewer from Omaha, NE US
This product does a decent job of making the fly negatively bouyant, but does not make a good substitute for split-shot. It does however work really well to make a surface fly work sub-surface (when needed) and make you flies sink a bit faster (especially in still water) without putting the fly on the bottom thereby makeing better baitfish presentations in stillwater.
No substitute for shot
Reviewer: A viewer from Greenville, SC US
This hydrophilic gel will help your fly penetrate the surface film faster and may help it sink, but I have found that it doesn't make a fly go to the bottom if the current is at all present. It helps buggy patterns with guard hairs take on water fast but it is no substitute for shot.
