That is a question we get asked a lot here at GAC! The huge range of fly floatants we have in stock sometimes only confuses anglers and we all have our favourites too! To make things a bit clearer the folks over at troutster.com performed a rather scientific and awesome reveiw of some of the most popular brands and came up with some interesting results - read the full test HERE!
Dry-Shake rated very highly!
If you are looking for quick answers well, the powder style flotants the most effective of the ones tested. The clear winner of the test was Tiemco Shimazake which won first place in every single test. Frogs Fanny came in second place and the best bargain gels are Loon Aquel and GAC favourite Loon Lochsa. The best selling Gherkes Gink was quite good but not the best - very surprising!
