orange buck tail


I have another thought about a way to get the color you want. I noticed that
anglers work shop sell them for 3.25. You
could call and arrange to send them a sample of the color you want (say a hackle feather to match) and if they can
supply the color you want , go a head and buy it. You could try any of the larger mail order suppliers. One word of caution about dying, It is hard to get the exact color you want or to recreate the same color twice.
On a seperate note, most dyes are toxic. Don't use pots or strainers that you intend to use for food again.
