weatherby's dry fly
WEATHERBY'S DRY FLY IS THE UK'S DRY FLY FLOATANT POWDER, DESIGNED TO GIVE YOUR DRY FLY THE ABILITY TO ACT LIKE A NATURAL. DON'T JUST MATCH THE HATCH, IMITATE TOO!
We carefully choose our dry flies by matching the hatch, selecting the fly that most closely imitates the natural that the fish are feeding on. But if the fly we offer the trout fail to act like a natural once on the water, it will be refused time and time again and that could be the end of the rise for that pool!
Weatherby's Dry Fly Floatant Powder will lift your fly on to the water, allowing you to add life to your fly and entice the rising fish to take!

I put a little on my CDC dry after catching and releasing a few nice rainbow trout. In which the fly was slimmed up a bit . A quick dip and shake the fly was dry once again and floated like a cork .Great stuff

I’ve recently used it on rivers and small still waters. Does exactly what it says on the tin and more. The Fly sits really proud on the water with a full coat or just add it to parts of flies to get them sitting in the film. The company seems to evolve and be open to honest feedback. Really fair and great communication. Thank you

In all my years of dry fly fishing I have wanted for a floatant that actually worked with out being greasy and messy. This stuff really does the job! Flys float extremely well and application is easy. The brush allows you to apply it without mess and it works for a very long time. Sure wish I had found this earlier.

Is Matching the Hatch Enough?
Fly fishing can be undertaken with just a few simple components, the rod, reel, line and fly. As fishermen we all have personal preferences as to how we configure each of these elements. The weight of the rod; the arbour size of the reel; forward weight or tapered line, maybe shooting head and then ultimately the fly.
The fly may be dry, wet or a nymph. With each version we want to present as realistic a version of the fly as possible. We want to imitate the natural food of the fish we are trying to catch.
With dry fly fishing, this imitation is happening right in front of our own eyes and if it doesn't look quite right to the critical eye of the fisherman, we know it won't look right to the fish that is very wary of predators......
