 We here at Rutland Gillies have been very busy bringing you the very best in fly floatant. For a 30ml bottle the price is £5 plus p&p. This bottle has a small brush so that when you take the fly out of the water just brush a little of the dust into the fly and it will float again with no hesitation. This dust works on nymphs, and all dry flies on the market today and it will not harm the fly in any way. To order your fly floatant please pm me. Many thanks Ziggy. Rutland Gillies
