Re: Landrail Sub

Carl ~

Veniard used to sell starling skins that had been bleached and then dyed a light brown as landrail sub. I used up all I had, but have purchased some bleached starling to try dying. I will send you some of the bleached starling if you would like it. Please PM me.

Re: More stuff

If you don't already have it, John, check out "Fishbugs" by Thomas Ames, Jr. This really is a special book IMO.
