The Story

Shake-and-Flote Renew revives drowned flies with just a simple shake of the bottle. No need to change flies and wait for the fly to dry on a patch. Drop the fly into the desiccant still tied to the leader, close the top, shake vigorously and the fly is instantly dry and you're back in business. 2-part powder contains 1) water-loving crystals that suck water and fish slime off the fly, drying it thoroughly and 2) water-hating powder that dusts fly fibers/hairs/hackles with a floatant that repels water so it stands up on its hackle points.

Made in USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dry floatant. I started flyfishing when I was thirteen growing up on a small spring Creek with lots of plunging pocket water. You start with gel floatant and eventually in pocket water it is going to drown. If you add more gel floatant your sealing in the water already in the fly. This product pulls the water out and re-floats your fly. Take it from someone who has fly fished for fifty years and i have used this Prince it was first offered and I used to be an Orvis guide who has tried everything, there absolutely is no better product on the market that works better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works great I've been fly fishing for sixty years. We used to use paraffin dissolved in white gas. This will float your flies with the best stuff out there right now. It won't gum up hackles and wings. It's easily the most convenient to use on stream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good product. Used one container all Summer, and I fished a'lot! Makes flies float longer, flies are easier to see and I am convinced it increased the number of strikes on my flies. I will be sure to have a new bottle in my pocket in the Spring !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best stuff ever I have been fly fishing for over 25 years and have tried just about every kind of floatant that is on the market. Orvis, Cabela, Cortland, you name it I tried it. Than I bought this stuff. WOW. I have never seen anything make the fly float the way this stuff does. I catch almost all of my trout within a couple of casts after applying this to my fly. It is Absolutly amazing. I would not go fishing without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Triggers Explosive Strikes My title says it all! True, it doesn't last over three to five casts, but if you put your fly on top of a feeding trout, it won't matter because you'll be playing that trout. My theory is the fly floats extra high, is white and resembles a real caddis in flight which triggers the explosive strike. IMHO, this and and an amidou patch ate the real secrets to successful dry fly fishing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best It worked only for a few casts and needed to be redone. The old liquid worked much better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This does the trick, and more. For the price it was a steal.
