Great way of Drying CDC Flies
 
A good way of Drying a waterlogged CDC fly out when fishing is to use an Elastic Band. have one one my Chest pack and Vest.
Just Hook the Hook round the Elastic band, pull the Elastic band tight and twang the elastic band.... fly is Dry ! Great Method :thmbup:

Red elastic bands would be good for worms.

tan coloured elastic bands make good Nymph/Grub bodies
