The High N Dry Paste Floatant is made to be used on both flies and leaders/tippet. This is a thicker type of gel than we usually add on our dry flies and is made to stick longer to the item than regular gel. We recommend this for usage on flies made of foam or bodies of hair like bombers. Its foremost usage is on leaders/tippets and strike indicators of materials like yarn and wool.

Greasing your leader has many advantages within a variety of fishing situations. Imagine you are sitting on the bank, waiting for patrolling trout. After a while the leader sink and when you want to make a new cast the fly dives and get stuck in some vegetation on the bottom. Fly lost and tippet broken! All types of monofilament soak up water after a while and the more you use your leader more it will soak up. Grease up your tapered leader and tip of fly line when fishing on shallow water and save yourself some irritation. Easy lift off’s with no diving flies!

Another scenario is when you are fishing dry flies active on the surface, a skating caddis pattern is an example. A well floating leader creates less pressure on fly and the result is a fly that floats better and moves easier on the surface. Like all High N Dry Products, it is 100% environmentally friendly, does not contain harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and is not affected by temperature extremes.
