  1. I do this same trick, however I use the rubber band first to get the water off & then apply my frog’s fanny

  2. Thanks for posting this video. I heard this tip mentioned on the Orvis podcast but couldn’t figure out how it was accomplished. Keep up the good work. The Orvis News is one of the few websites that I visit daily.
