This great floatant is probably the most popular gel formula for floating dry flies. It is quite inexpensive and works overall pretty good. To see how it compares to several other similar products visit the fly floatant test/review page here.
With an average price tag of $3.00-$4.00 you are certainly getting your moneys worth with Gink.
Here are a few bits of info that we discovered in our testing:
- Gink becomes hard to dispense in cold weather (it thickens)
- It becomes very liquid in hot weather
- As far as gel floatants are concerned it was a middle of the road in terms of floatability and fish slime resistance.
Would I Buy Gink?
Yes, I have a bottle in my backpack right now as a backup floatant. I always try to keep extras on me just in case I lose some on the river. It is not the best in my opinion, but it is a good buy for the price.
