    Default Rod tye colors

    Well
    after a few months messing around with the dyes i think ihave managed to replicate Rod Tyes fiery brown and chocolate shades.
    It has been an expensive programe with over 8 saddles wasted in the process but well worth the effort and frustration.
    Now to start to get a few of each dyed up this week for the web site and the shows
    IRISH FIERY BROWN

    IRISH CHOCOLATE

    I like the fiery red - brown, I make a similar color for trout flies here, very nice.
