Amadou Fly Dryer

Amadou is a natural product made from a fungus, Fomes fomentarius, known as tinder fungus or hoof fungus. It has been used for thousands of years as a tinder for starting fires and even as a material for clothing. The 5,000-year-old Ötzi the Iceman carried four pieces of F. fomentarius, concluded to be for use as tinder – though perhaps he was a dry fly angler.

Its interest to the fly tier is its amazing ability to dry out sodden flies. The incredibly soft and absorbent material will dry flies without damaging CDC and hackles. Simply squeeze the fly between the two layers of amadou to soak up excess water.
