I see that you have to apply a wax everyday you fish to keep it afloat, sometimes coating it multiples times a day? I thought if you apply the wax when wet, it wont be as effective as compared when it's completely dry.
I'm in a chrugie mood so take this with a grain of salt. What the heck is an "ultimate dry leader?" In my old book that would be a lady in her '30's or early 40's in a skimpy two piece bathing suit walking down the beach. I'll leave out references to 'flies' (my pant zipper) as that could get me banned, and I have already been 'warned.'
Note to self: Yellow Labs are a great introduction tool.
