The Story

Dry your soaked CDC fly patterns quickly and naturally. Amadou, a spongy material derived from a natural tree fungus (Fomes formentarius), has amazing fly-drying qualities.

To use, simply squeeze your drowned dry fly in between the two patches and all the moisture is sucked out. You are now ready for action. Not just for CDC flies, the Amadou Fly Dryer will also dry larger flies and prepare the fly to be redressed with floatant.

Leather cover protects the Amadou. 2" X 3".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Successful fly, dried and ready to go! I tie a cdc winged caddis that is very effective on the Farmington River. The patch is a quick way to restore the cdc and the fly as a whole fly after a fish take.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry fly Great product and easy to use. I just laied the fly in between and let the pads draw the moisture from the fly. Keeps my hooks from rusting and flies dry.
