Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep Your Fly On The Top Your fly stays dry and floatable much longer and less effort. A couple of squeeses. Desiccant for that exta and cast. This Pad is larger than most and usable all day. Makes changing dries much easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff This works great to suck the water off your drowned flies then redress with floatant. I thought it was a little expensive but well worth it once I used it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Helpful I always have issues with my CDC flies not floating for long especially after a trout eats it. Now I wash the fly off in the stream, false cast once or twice then stick it between the Amadou Patch and pinch the patch. You can see the water you get out of the fly. Add your Frogs Fanny or other CDC floatant and almost as good as new. I am probably going to order another patch for a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little device I used my Amadou fly drying patch for the first time this past weekend while fishing the small native brook trout streams in the high mountains of West Virginia. These streams require a fairly technical approach as the they are steep and only a couple feet wide with significant close overhead cover. Additionally, from pool to pool, there are some rapid flows and your fly takes a real beating. Using the Amadou, I could quickly and easily dry my fly between casts to keep the presentation looking natural. A great little addition to my vest accessories which helps me catch more fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle This soaks up water like crazy! Very quickly returns a waterlogged fly to a floating condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amadou ! Where have you been ? My Fly fishing mentors told me about amadou , and I'm so glad it's being marketed again. This little gem from Orvis gently takes much of the moisture out of your fly and without further chemical treatment , gets it back out on the water, where it belongs . Great for CDC dry flies !
