Skins

Readying the phesant skins for dyeing.  I’m after the choice rump feathers near the very rear and the base of the tail.

I’m excited about the whole new universe of fly tying possibilities that are about to open up. Stay tuned for the step-by-step dyeing experiment some rainy weekend.

    1. Doing my part to manage exotic species in North America. I did dye one yellow last night and it turned out looking great. Next color will be blue.
