Do you use floatant on an emerger fly ? I'm trying them on a dropper dry fly .

It depends on what the fish are doing if you see head and tail rises it is likely the trout are eating the mayflies as they rise in the water column and they eat them a few inches under the surface. If you see more typical head rises then you can add a little floatant.
