What is your favorite dry fly floatant and why? I am also looking at silicone type solutions to use on dry flies when they are new (before they are fished). I used to use this stuff called Nu-Kote and it worked great. Soak them, then lay them out on a paper plate overnight. I would still use a little Gink or simlar product on the water. The stuff worked great but I can't find it anywhere these days. I have also heard that "Scotch Guard" on new flies works "reel" good too. What do use use?
