Just read an article in TROUT mag. from TU on this stuff.
Want to know if anyone uses this stuff on todays fly lines. I have in the past and am not sure if I should still use it. What do you guys/gals think.

Last thing I recall reading about Mucilin was that Scientific Anglers went out of their way to specify that anglers NOT use it on their lines. Been a while so maybe there's been updated info.

I use red tin mucilin all the time, but I'm fishing silk lines a vast majority of the time, not plastic. I occasionaly use Loon something or other line cleaner/treatment on the couple of plastic lines I do sometimes fish with. Have never used mucilin on the plastic lines.

I use the green on leaders and tippets, not the line. Just make sure the line is clean before each outing.

I use it on my leader, but not on the fly line.

When mixed with lighter fluid, it makes a dynamite dunk the whole fly in floatant.

I use it on leaders but I also do not hesitate to grease up to the last 10ft or so of line if it starts to sink. When "modern" lines stop having tips that eventually sink, I'll stop using it. Having a high floating line makes mending much easier in my experience. It out ways the possibility of ruining a line, but I haven't seen that happen yet.

I have used the Green Mucilin in the past and liked it. The last container I bought was plastic and the lid broke within 2 or 3 trips. I much preferred the metal tins it used to come in.

they sink, that's why i don't use them on streams - great for nymphing lakes and the salt, but i always found that after a number of trips the first 6" would sink.

DT's i don't have an issue with - never treat the line. they last maybe 2 years then i switch them round.

imho if your having to treat your fly line, you either need a new one or its the wrong type, in which case you need a new one too...
