By Chris Sharland 01/08/2020

Welcome back to Win Stuff Wednesday for 2020! It's going to be anohter huge year of giveaways for you lot so make sure to stay tuned in each week because it'll only be a matter of time before you win something.

This week we've got a Loon Amadou patch to giveaway, keep an eye out for tomorrow's Techy Thursday where Chris Dore will go into some serious detail as to why you need one and what makes them tick but here's the quick version for you.

"Amadou is primarily composed of a mushroom: "Fomes fomentarius", and its primary purpose is taking soggy, water-logged, good-for-nothing dry flies and getting them ready to fish again. A simple squeeze between the two pads of this magical material sucks out water from a drowned fly, restoring its ability to float. Though it stands alone as a means of keeping flies floating, it is best viewed as a piece of the dry fly puzzle that includes some kind of dip or gel, and/or a powder floatant."
