    It is not necessary or needed. Your flies will still get soaked eventually even with the spray.

    The best I can recommend is a desiccant to dry your fly, and a liquid flotant like gink or aquel to treat it.

    If you are using flies tied with cdc, don't treat them, just dry them.

    You just have to be careful when buying Gink, some salespeople will overcharge by as much as 10 cents per bottle.

    Then, you'd have to drive your $70,000 land rover back to thd shop to demand you $.10 back.
