|Ralph - you need to do more internet surfing and less fishing - oh wait,|
it's the other way around. Ha ha..
The main purpose of Snake River Mud is to make the leader/tippet break the surface tension, especially
when fishing dry flies over spooky trout, but occasionally I have seen it mentioned, as if
it was common knowledge, that it also is used to reduce line glare.
In particular, some guys involved in international fly fishing competitions
seem to use it and similar compounds to reduce line glare - here is
the latest such post I have seen on a board devoted to discussing
trout competition techniques - they even discuss their own formulas
for making the stuff -
