Ripple Foam Fly Patch -
ideal size and shape to fit onto the front of my fly vest. Holds flies well and easy to access at any time. Don't know why it took me so long to buy one. It's a must have piece of kit.

Range of attachment options is great, and flies attach well at this point. Will be a regular feature on my vest/jacket - no more wool to pull off the hook shank!!
God's Dryer -
By: Cypressh2o from Start, Louisiana
It looks like an old fashion wash board but its actual the oldest dryer ever invented. When God said "let there be light", he developed a dryer for Orvis Foam Fly Patch.
Ripple foam fly patch -

Nice foam patch, but the clip holder leaves a lot to be desired. For such a nice fly patch I would thought there would had been better. I would like to see a better material to hold the patch.
Excellent for Float Tubers -
By: Fllyfisherman from Grass Valley, CA
I used Velcro to attach this device to both the Left and Right pontoons of my float tube to hold used flies. Much simpler that putting each fly back into it's plastic case after each use, and it's available for use later in the day or trip. When I get home I put these flies in their proper boxes.
soft junk -
By: southturner from London UK, Livingston Manor USA
it's just a piece of foam with a clip, I radically modified mine, as what I really wanted was the just foam, with a hard backing, so, cut it down, and attached it it to to something that will actually hold. the original Orvis clip supplied, is useless, and will fall off with the lightest touch, the other option was a clothespin, high tech it's not.
Foam is not so good -

The foam ripple material on mine only lasted 2years. It looks as if my flies destroyed it fully in 2 seasons. It is as bad as all the other ones and I have not yet seen any version made by any body that lasts and works properly. ORVIS - please invent something that is apart from the rest.
great item -

Be careful... -
I wanted one of these to replace my sheepskin patch which seems to tangle around my flies. This looked like the perfect alternative. However, the foam is not effective at holding the flies in place - it has the opposite problem to sheepskin. I lost 4 flies from this patch in one day. I will be returning to the sheepskin...
love this thing! keeps my heavy streamers in place while im falling in the river.
