    Laurie,

    Very well dressed fly. Do you dye your own materials in picric or buy it?

    I dye my own materials in Picric,i have experimented with it over the past couple of years and i managed to get some information of the old Irish masters and the materials they dyed. It is marvalous the different shades you can obtain especially with the likes of a furnace saddle where you get a light shading on the outer saddle and the unerd part of the saddle comes out a deep rich golden olive,the picric shows up amazingly in peatty waters,
    I managed to do a couple of videos on the tyings of these sedges , so i would like to share them with you as i hope you get as much enjoyment from them as i did doing them.
