|Gink (15 ml's)|
"Homemade Floatant" made from red (label) mucilin & lighter fluid and written by YellowStoneFly at the Idaho Fly Fishers Blog. My favorite guide on the Big Horn suggested a mixture of red mucilin and lighter fluid on day when I was complaining about the cost of Gink. Now there are different ratios, but I find that 3:1 lighter fluid to mucilin works the best. And just so I want forget, THIS FLOATANT IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE. Because mucilin is basically paraffin, if this solution gets onto your vest or shirt it stays for a long time. If you then light a cigarette or your favorite cigar, be very careful for you could ignite.
