Fulling Mill Dry Sauce Product ReviewPublished: 13th June 2016 | Author: Kieron Jenkins
It’s been an exciting few months here at Fulling Mill, we’ve seen the introduction of many top fly patterns and a small range of fly fishing accessories. The arrival of the Fulling Mill Dry Sauce has been long awaited by the dry fly enthusiasts here at FM, and we just had to get out and try it.
Fulling Mill Dry Sauce
The Fulling Mill Dry Sauce is our premium fly floatant that cleans, dries and waterproofs your fly in one easy step. The floatant is totally insoluble in water meaning you won’t get an ‘oily’ slick around your fly, hopefully, allowing more fish to freely eat your offering without hesitation. It’s also temperature stable so won’t melt and leak whilst stored in warm places.
The best way to apply the floatant is to squeeze a small amount onto your fingers and gently rub into the fly. Focusing on the area of the fly you wish to float. If it’s an emerger, lather the top of the fly, if it’s a full dry fly pattern, cover the whole of the fly to add buoyancy.
I’ve been using the Dry Sauce from Fulling Mill ever since the first sample batch – First impressions were very good, the stability of the liquid was great, a tacky feeling to touch. Even since the weathers warmed up the dry sauce has kept it’s solidity. Personally I’m not a fan of ‘wet’ floatants. There’s nothing worse than opening a bottle of floatant to treat your fly to find that it’s melted – It then leaks all over your fingers and involuntarily coats your tippet and other parts of you fishing tackle in floatant. In turn, spooking fish!
The Dry Sauce is a long lasting liquid, allowing you to fish a fairly long time before having to re-treat – a big bonus when the fishing is fast and furious.
At just £6.50 per bottle, I found the Dry Sauce to be very competitively priced. To purchase the Fulling Mill Dry Sauce, see here.
