First attempt at dyeing white pronghorn.  Seemed to suck up the color readily, although it might be a bit too intense; may try it again with a more diluted solution.

hook - WFC Model 11 #10
thread - Veevus 6/0 black 
tag - Danville single strand floss flame
rib - small wire silver 
body - Ice Dub peacock black
hackle - black
collar/head - pronghorn dyed blue (1 Tbs Rit Aquamarine, 1/8 Tsp Rit Kelly Green/1 cup water)

Regards,
Scott

Had to sub dyed grizzly for the body hackle since I didn’t have any plain in that size.  Since I doubt any fish I put this in front of have ever seen the original, it’s unlikely they’ll notice the difference.

hook - WFC Model 11 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 black 
tag - Depth Ray fire orange/resin
rib - small wire gold
body - Ice Dub black
hackle - grizzly dyed claret (1 Tbs rit Wine/1 cup water)
cheeks - biots orange
collar/head - hen black

Regards,
Scott

Thanks. I haven’t had much experience dyeing black; from what I know, it’s best to dye it dark brown or dark blue first before the black.  I bought the rump patch already dyed so I didn’t have to deal with that.

Scott

Thanks for the info Scott.

I tried dying buck tail with Rit dye and it came out grey with bluish overtones.

I really like the color but not what I expected.

Ubiquitous Adams, size 14. I am always working on proportions. I use paras on slower waters, heavily hackled flies like this one on faster waters.
