Probably the best buy as far as gel fly floatants are concerned. Aquel is inexpensive and widely available at any fly shop or sporting goods store.
In our fly floatant test we discovered several attributes that make this a great product to buy such as:
- Extreme heat and cold does not affect Loon Aquel, I placed it outside for 30 minutes in -5 degrees and I could easily squeeze it out of the bottle. I also found that 30 minutes strapped to the front of a 1oo degree heater did not effect its viscosity at all.
- Aquel showed great resistance to fish slime in our tests
- All things taken into consideration, Aqel is a bargain and deserves to be in your fly vest.
