I was out yesterday evening on the river behind my house, and while i was fishing the trout started to rise. I found the perfect fly, but realised id lost my floatent, so couldnt fish it. I tried a few wets in frustration, but didnt get as much as a bite, eventually i even swapped to my <dare i say it> spinning rod (as fish are rising a few metres from me) but to no avail... eventually i gave up as it got dark ready to do battle again tonight. Out of interest is there anything household one could use as a floatent if i ever found myself in the same position? Probably not, but id be interested.
