    Default Small, flat floatant paste

    I have a small, light fly fishing outfit. So light that I can throw it in my day pack without thinking anything about it. And if I come across a small pond or feeder creek, well...

    I need a very small container of floatant that I can put in the fly box that I've rigged to hold all my tackle. All the squeezable containers, like eye drop containers, are too thick. I remember seeing small, round containers with paste fly floatant, but can't seem to find them.

    Any leads?

    Hi Gator,
    I'm not sure that I've seen the type you mentioned, but I have heard(on this site I believe)that you can use 'Chapstick' for floatant if your in a pinch, and that would fit in your box.


    **Wait a minute, I just reread your post and I misunderstood what you were asking, I thought you meant small round containers such as those that Chapstick come in.
    Anyway, I think 'Gink' floatant comes in a round container in a paste formulation, along with a squeeze type bottle.

    Ok, well maybe it doesn't come in the small round containers anymore, I just looked through all my F/F links and could not find any either. Sorry.

    Dave's floatant comes in a squooshed-looking container that uses the same cap system most of the other floatants use.

    Gator,
    The Cortland 'Dab' floatant is one that I had seen many moons ago.

    Well I went Shopping this afternoon with the wife @ the local mall and guess what I spied? it was a bright Orange container of Cortland Floatant, I thought about getting it for you but someone had stuck their finger in it so I didn't get it, and it was the only one that I seen.

    If your interested and cannot find any, I would be willing to drive to town and get that one for you if you want it.

    This Loon floatant still comes in one of the small round containers. I just got some a couple of weeks ago. There are still a number of online places that have it.

    Thanks to everyone who took an interest in my "little" project. I found the Cortland Dab Floatant on the internet and ordered it.

    Happy holidays and tight lines.
