Since amadou is a highly absorbing material, it is also very sensitive to any moisture source! That’s why Revolution-Amadou and other amadou products shouldn’t be kept in rain or close to the skin because if you sweat a lot, it will immediately absorb all the moisture and can get damaged. The same happens if it falls into the water and it gets soaked wet.
The small “reserve” amadou sheet is given exactly for these cases, when you remain without the fly drier and you still want to go fishing 🙂 So you have the small piece there to dry your flies in this meantime (even if you use your fingers for one part).
What means damaged amadou? It shrinks, gets very thin and hard, and loses almost 100% its absorbing properties. Click this link to see how we repair it!
Since we know these risks, and since we want to offer our clients a lasting premium product, we offer our customers the replacement of the amadou layers for only 20 EUR, shipment included.
For any other questions or requests, we’re here for you, so don’t hesitate to write us an e-mail 🙂
