DIY - Fly Floatant

An Dinh

There are a number of recipes on the internet floating around for making your own fly treatment for waterproofing.  After a dunk the flies remain buoyant all day long.  This video is my first attempt to concoct a homemade batch of magic juice.

*Note - store your floatant in an airtight container.  Over time the Naptha (White Gas) evaporates and leaves just the wax.

Here are the links that inspired me to try this experiment.
