I have been expirementing and am trying to get a really vibrant purple color for a pattern I want to adapt. My purple seems subdued even when it I let it get darker. I am really looking for a striking color that I have seen on a color plate of old spey flies and was hoping someone on here could pass a few tips along that might help get my colors to really pop. I was wondering if it had to do with how I was bleaching (with chlorox) neutralized afterwards with baking soda and water. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. :beer1: Anyone use anything else to remove the hair from spey hackle?
