Re: Hen cape - what color would call this?

How about light furnace? Light furnace and Greenwell are the names I've seen to describe capes like that. Light furnace is the cape that was used by James Wright to tie Greenwells Glory for Canon Greenwell, or so I have been told. After the success of that fly, the fly was named Greenwells Glory an...

Re: What color Pearsalls is this?

Your mystery orange is in between my amber and my hot orange. It changes when I change the angle of the screen. If you send me all your silk I just ...
