Joe D,
How do you wash your c.d.c. before the dying process?
If all the oils are not removed, I don't think the c.d.c. will readily accept the dye? but I could be wrong.
I have used 'Dawn' dishwashing soap for this and it seems to remove oil and dirt pretty well.

fyshstykr,

I guess my post was somewhat vague now that I've re-read it. Sorry about that.

I don't wash or dye my cdc. I meant that by getting it straight from the source it still had the natural oils in it, it wasn't store bought stuff that was washed and dyed.

The colors I get from nature range from white, tans/browns, to various shades of dun. Mostly white and dun shades and for most of the flies I tie with cdc these are the right colors.

Joe

Joe,

Thanks for clarifying that, you had me wondering.
As far as roadkill... well, not for my tying stock, but I do pick it up for jerkey on fishing trips. lol
