This is a tried and true method for drying drowned flies. Used it myself for years and still have a small jar of desicant in my vest. Takes more time and fumbling. One key to desicants is to make sure you remove all excess from your fly before adding floatant or fishing. Desicant soaks up many times it's own weight in water, leave any on the fly and it will start sinking quickly causing the need to repeat treatment.
