    As I noted in a review of the Orvis floatant system, the Hy-Flote gel is real gem of the system. It works best when applied to dry flies before fishing, and doing so enables them to ride higher and float longer before becoming saturated. When they do become saturated, I dry them using an amadou pad followed by a reapplication of the Hy-Flote gel. For best performance, simply rub a small dab of the gel between your fingers to warm, then rub the gel into the fly (especially the hackle) until absorbed. Tight lines.

    I had reservations about this product never having used it before, but the Hy-Flote Gel works. For me it allows me to see my stimulator fly more easily as it tumbles through swift water while the nymph does it's work.

    Keeps the fly floating longer than many gel floatants I've used over the years. The best thing is that the consistency isn't affected by temperature changes too much. I've used too many that turn to liquid in heat and turn almost solid in cold. This doesn't have that problem.

    This product is great for use with dry flies, especially when used in conjunction with a high quality powdered floatant. I use it to start a fly off and then switch to powdered floatants after getting it wet for a while. I couldn't be happier with this product.

    It is a must have for dry flies. It last a long time and doesn't mess up the fly up at all.
