Tiemco Dry Magic. Stuff is amazing. I'm yet to find anything that it doesn't work on.

Yeah, I'd have trouble thinking gell floatants would work on CDC too. But I use very little CDC, personally.

I have not tried it on cdc. I don't think it will work. I don't fish many cdc flies other then using it for trailing shucks that I do not put any floatant on.

it clearly says Jack M on the bottom left hand corner of the piece of paper.

and agreed on dry magic. been using it for a few years and it is absolutely amazing (and probably 75% of my dry flies contain cdc).

I use gel floatant on cdc all the time. Catch plenty of fish on it too.

It's different, not better. I use both when fishing CDC/snow shoe hare. I'll dress my fly with Dry Magic before I start fishing then use some Frog's Fanny as needed if the fly becomes water logged.

Yeah I don't know about the CDC thing either. I use CDC rarely. Most of my dries are EHC, wulffs, etc.

Is Jack M. the same Jack M. that had the shop at the junction the Genesee Forks and Pine for a while many years ago? I can't remember his last name. It was one of those long Slav/Russian names like Menkavich. We had a bunch of folks with the same name with farms back home in southern Erie County, so I should be able to remember it..

Mickievicz. That was it..

He was a good guy. I used to like to stop in and see him when he had the shop. If indeed its the same guy.

I am out right now and jack is up here for 2 weeks, I'll see him on tues. and see if he has any made. He only makes a small batch a year and it goes fast. I sold last one to brad..I use it on all my flies, it looks like gel but melts to a liquid when you touch it. caought 17 brookies on one fly and never had to touch the fly and floated like a cork...I do a example with a all wire fly and it floats. even floated a bead head in a dish..its permanent too.
