Video Tutorial - Dying Bird Skins by Blue Ribbon Flies

Post by letumgo » Thu Jan 21, 2016 12:56 pm

This weeks Blue Ribbon Flies news letter contained a link to a video tutorial, showing how they dye their bird skins. It is a great video, showing their whole process. I wanted to capture the link here, in case others wish to experiment with dying their own bird skins.

Thank you, Ray. That video makes the task appear far less daunting than one would expect.

Ray,

Great vid; thanks for the link. Not much more to it than dyeing with Koolaid.

Regards,
Scott

Thanks Ray.

Anyone know which flavor of koolaid trout prefer? :D
