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.
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.
