Fly Tying Tip #109

When I tie dry flies the last step is to soak them in a dry fly solution and hang to dry completely.  I string them on fine wire.  A good one is made by Loon and is called Hydrostop.

The advantage is that each fly is given the time to dry thus eliminating the need to slop on chemical stream side.  My fly change is faster because there is no application of floatant, no rapid waving line to dry the fly spooking fish and no tell tail oil stain around the fly on landing.

Big Atlantic Salmon dries float like corks!!!!
