Gehrke’s Gink is now 28 years old. It is the first commercially offered, safe, dry fly dressing that floated flies repeatedly. Its' features and functions are unique in the world of chemistry and fly fishing. Gehrke’s has a specific gravity of only .77% that of water, which means it's lighter than water. Gehrke’s Gink is a liquid emulsifier that permeates deep into the body material of dry flies. It will either coat sythetics or penetrate fur or feather.
Gink is a light paste that turns to a liquid at skin temperature. Upon coming in contact with cold water it returns to a clear, unseen, invisible gel that keeps water from making your dry flies or streaking streamers, wet. Flies stay dry for the normal useful life of any and all dry flies astream.
Gehrke’s Gink is easy to use. Simply dab a little Gehrke’s Gink onto a dry, dry fly (before it is allowed to get wet) and rub it into the fly until dressed. Hackles do not become matted or caked with Gehrke’s Gink. Gehrke’s Gink has no smell or odors and leaves no oil slicks as other dressing do. Gehrke’s Gink is an original invention that is environmentally safe and “Fly Friendly”.
Fully and unconditionally guaranteed, Gehrke’s Gink has not let one dry Fly-fisherman down . . . ever.
What more could anyone ask astream? When the last thing we all must do is “dress the fly?” It comes to that, each time.
