I don't use it to make the tippet less visible, I use it to sink the fly or line. It adds the weight to sink, but then washes off once it has sunk. No added split shot. Xink does the same,but Mud is everywhere and all natural.
Thanks Joni! I understand. The way you say it... Where do you get your mud from? <~~~ Sounds like a crazy question. Are you just getting it stream side, or are you buying it?

Make a paste out of fullers earth and Dawn liquid soap then add a couple drops of glycerin to keep it from drying out. Empty 35mm film canisters work great for storage. ;)

I like Darwins solution. I have a few tins I got from Orvis and when possible I use stream side. Some places there really isn't good mud, so it comes in handy.

MUD????? I live in a frikkin desert....this is gonna take on heck of a search

maybe I'll keep one of my old shoe polish tins (yes I still polish my shoes)

whoops..just remembered I have some small round and square poly snap top containers on my reloading bench, they will work just fine,
I get them at my local .99 store 10 to the pk for a buck
