Fly fishers are inveterate tinkerers, always looking for the best way to do things. Here’s a video of a Spanish angler who has devised an ingenious system for drying out his CDC dry fly. Since you can’t use floatant on CDC, it usually requires several sharp false casts to get such a fly floating again after it’s been sunk. But sometimes even false-casting won’t get the fly completely back into high-floating shape, so here’s another method.
Warning: The video is entirely in Spanish, but it doesn’t matter. The technique is clear, even if you can’t understand the words.
