This premium gel floatant is the world’s best fly floatant. Aquel is long lasting, silicon based and won’t melt when it’s hot or harden when it’s cold. Furthermore, it masks human odor and won’t leave any slick on even the calmest water. (Pronounced “ahh kwel”).
Prior to first cast, apply desired amount of Aquel to fly. Use fingers to work Aquel into hair and hackle. If fly becomes water logged, use powder desiccant to dry, then reapply.
There is a plethora of choices out there in floatants. I have been using aquel for longer than I can remember. Great choice at a great price.
I have used Aquel for years, and as a guide in Jackson's Hole, we celebrate our native Fine-Spotted Native Cutthroat Trout as a wonderful athlete whose power, and "surface love" means we have some of the best dry fly fishing one can find! Yes, need Aquel by my side in my boat, in my pocket, my wading vest....just a must have item at all times! No other floating comes close to performance, without "gummy smashing" of hackle! Thanks for a great product!
Half oz size is very small but it doesn’t take more than a drop to refresh a fly. Bought the caddy to go with it which clips perfectly to my pack
A staple in my kit... always gets it done!
