what floatant to use for furled leaders?
 
hi all,

I am going to try furled leaders for the first time this season and wondered what you guys use as floatant. Will any dry fly dressing work or is there something specific that works better? How often do you reapply?

thanks,

chris

I use Loon Payette Paste that works well and keeps the furled leader floating for a whole days fishing

Green Mucilin is what I use.

We use Loon Payette Paste during the hand crafting of our leaders. We have used / tested many different brands, as long as you use a paste type floatant, you should be good. Gel floatants do not adhere to the thread as well as paste type floatants. We use / sell so much of the Payette Paste, that Loon has allowed us to “co-brand” sell the paste under our own packaging. Remember, to save $$$ on our site, use the coupon code NAFFF.

Sorry for the two post's back to back. I just meant to mention that the paste floatant should be applied to a dry thread furled leader. This allows the thread to absorb much more of the paste floatant. I often fish all day long with only applying the paste once in the morning to a dry leader.
Thanks
