Santa croaker is looking for a good fly dryer.
Any recommendations appreciated.

Thanks.

Don....I got mine from this guy and love it.....moderately priced too I thought.....he had one on after I bought mine ...but currently does'nt have anything listed....you might send him a message and tell him your interested in one and see if he has any more available.

I looked all over for an 8 RPM motor and just the parts to build one would have cost me more than what I paid for this one.

There are a couple list on Ebay....but they are in the $80 range :(

I was looking on eBay after Left Behinds, and the best I could find was $65. I know you can do better. It looks like Tom got a great deal.

I made one from parts so the cost is negligible. Use a DC motor from a piece scraped equipment, variable resistor, switch, and wooden disk with 6 small spring clamps. 9V battery powers it. Isn't pretty but works well.
