A two piece leather patch containing 'the mysterious fungus' amadou. This bizarre material has long been coveted by fly fishermen for it's exceptional absorbency. Many have tried, but no one has yet been able to devise a superior material to desiccate ones dries. 

Here's what Troutline has to say: 

Amadou is a natural material obtained from a certain oak fungus. Is not a simple thing to have it because the fungus raise only in very old forest, usually on trees older than 100 years ( difficult to find in Europe in these days ). The fungus is processed in a special way in more than 60days. It's hammered with wood hammers, boiled, left in water with ash until the material becomes soft and delicate like velvet. It's dried and and then cut in desired shapes and sheets. It is a lot of hand work over a long period of time but in the end we have an excellent, handcrafted piece that will save the day especially when you fish with CDC flies!
