Do you dye your own

Post by megaflies on Tue Jan 22, 2013 11:30 pm

was just wondering how many of us actually process, treat and dye materials.

ive been doing it for a few years now, i get a great buzz from taking a raw material or skin and doing the business with it so i can tie a nice fly with the finished material.

now i am getting technicall and a bit geeky, by weighing the dye's and materials when mixing colours, so i can produce it time and time again.

When you do and it drys out again before tying it get another lot that has not had the treatment and put them both under a UV light Wink
