Worlds Best Dry Fly Dressing
Preface by: George Gehrke
® original English definition means; small
salmon or smolt. A good fellow, such as He
is a ®, means, he is a good fellow. Today, the
words intention is to mean Good
Fisherman and it is the name of our main product Gehrkes ®.
: The #1 Dry Fly Dressing Sold Worldwide.
Gehrkes ® When it comes to SKATING Salmon & Steelhead
patterns is the world's foremost Game Fish Fly Dressing.
THIS YEAR: Stop thinking of Gink as just a dry fly dressing. Gink
is deadly when used to skate streamers that entice Steelhead and
Salmon to take chase. USE GINK WHEN STEELHEADING!
Gehrkes ® 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. Gehrkes ® has a specific gravity of only .77% that of
water, which means it's lighter than water. Gehrkes ® is a liquid emulsifier that permeates deep into
the body material of dry flies. It will either coat sythetics or
penetrate fur or feather.
® 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.
Gehrkes ® has helped set more world records than all other
dry fly dressings in the world combined. This includes total sales,
making, after 27 years of service the most revolutionary product
in dry fly fishing history. Gehrkes ® was invented by Mr. George Eugene Gehrke.
Gehrkes ® is easy to use. Simply dab a little Gehrkes ® 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 Gehrkes ®. A serious fault of silicone based dressings
that attract dirt, grit, and which cake expensive hackles into a
matted mess. Gehrkes ® is fly friendly in all aspects. The product
will even float a bare #8 light wire dry fly hook, but this is nothing
more than an entertaining thing to see float in a glass of water.
Simply rinse the fly after a fish is caught and false cast dry.
Dress only the first two inches of tippet from dry flies with Gehrkes ® as this is all the leader necessary to float
from the fly.
Gehrkes ® has no smell or odors and leaves no oil slicks
as other dressing do. Gehrkes ® is an original invention that is environmentally
safe and Fly Friendly.
There is hardly a serious fly fisher that goes astream without Gehrkes ®. ® is a legacy that spans several Presidents. The
first to use ® was Dwight Eisenhower, and then every fly fishing
President there after including Jimmy Carter and George Bush. Other well
known users have been Curt Gowdy, Lee & Joan Wulff, John Randolph of
Flyfisherman's Magazine, George Harvey, Dan Byford of Zonker fame, and a
hodge-podge of other fly fishermen that spans the entire spectrum of the
fly fishing world. I can think of people such as Hollywood actors to the
man next door. Gehrkes ® has touched the lives of many and has gone
fishing with men and women to all corners of this world. Wherever fish can
be caught on a dry fly, you will inevitably find . . . ®.
Fully and unconditionally guaranteed, Gehrkes ® has not let one dry Fly-fisherman down . .
What more could anyone ask astream? When the last thing we all must do is dress
the fly? It comes to that, each time.
