VERDICT

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Know How | Floatants Test -

Gels are less likely to pro­duce oil slicks and do not need the dry­ing time of liq­uids. They’re eas­ier to ap­ply in a very thin film than the pastes. Con­trary to pop­u­lar be­lief, all th­ese gels worked well on CDC feath­ers if ap­plied in a very thin film, worked into the ma­te­rial very gen­tly and thor­oughly, fol­lowed by fluff­ing up the feath­ers. Ex­am­i­na­tion un­der mag­ni­fi­ca­tion showed that the struc­ture of the CDC feath­ers had not been com­pro­mised. The mi­cro barbs stuck out at right an­gles as they did be­fore treat­ment with the gel.
