Last Sunday, I used roe for the first time since the early 1990s. Wow, I forgot how effective it was, as I saw some dudes catching springs with it. They gave me some to use with my drift gear, after getting skunked on my fly. But I kind of have a dumb question. ??? I know some guys cure their roe with the borax from the grocery store (the soap kind, in the green box), which can't be good for the river or environment...but seems to cure roe ok, as I seen it done years ago. Then I read an article that the "real" borax is the one from the drug store, a compound, not the soap. I tried looking for the "real" borax years ago and could never find any. Does anyone know where to get the original "real" borax? Now that I'm getting into my drifting and centerpin again, I'm on the hunt.
I know there's the dyed stuff in stores, but I'm not crazy about that stuff as the quality is a concern. But will use it if I have to.
