Default Floatants?

With the many floatants on the market, I thought I would ask what kind do you like the best?
I actually use 2 brands, one for warm weather and one for colder weather.

My personal favorite would be "Poo Goo", developed by Andie Puyon and sold by RIO, will float a bug all day but it can be a little thick and harder to dispense in the colder months.

And a close 2nd choice would be "Aquel" from Spirit River, stays very pliable in the cold.

I think both are 100% silicone based, and both have worked well for me.

I've tried the aquel and the bottle really lasts forever! I used it all summer and looks brand new still.works good until u get a few hits. but then dry the fly apply a lil more usually after a fish or 2 and the fly floats like new again!

Hi to all,

I use two. Aquel on the stream and Hydrostop at the bench. I also soak my indicators in Hydrostop.

I like the "dave's bug flote" that umpqua sells because it stays a little thicker in the TX heat, and the bottle with short chain is mighty convenient.
