44cc gran­ules in a tub

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Know - How -

Wash the fly and dry it man­u­ally, then shake it with the sil­ica gran­ules un­til com­pletely dry. Putting a soaked or slimed fly di­rectly into th­ese gran­ules is an in­ef­fi­cient way of us­ing them and they will be­come ex­hausted rapidly. They con­tain in­di­ca­tor crys­tals that change colour from pink to blue once ex­hausted. They were found to be ex­hausted when the tub was opened – this can oc­cur if the prod­uct is old or has been left un­capped as it will ab­sorb mois­ture from the at­mos­phere. I re­gen­er­ated them by dry­ing in an oven at 100 deg C for 30 min­utes. It’s not as con­ve­nient as the patches.
