Default Re: Want to tie, need information.

Don't disagree about the box 'o Haretron, but if you tie GRHE's according to standard instructions you clip hair from various areas of the mask for various components of the fly which is why I still suggest to tyers having a mask.

You're dead on about the desire/need for multiple colors, but I've found you can blend the face/fluff hair with colored synthetics (which is essentially what Haretron is) to get the same effect... so if you have access to yarn that you can snip in bits and blend with hair, you can get by for awhile.

You can buy a package of hair ties at the store and use those to save some bucks early on, or if you know anyone who knits.... get a foot of this and a foot of that =)
