Sharpies they have enough colors and diffrent size tips .
Are we all just puppet masters floating our little fly puppets to an audience of fish ??

I use ChartPak markers and Sharpies in black and red.

In Architecture school the ChartPak markers were much cheaper than Prismacolor and lasted longer.
They both have a large selection of both secondary and tertiary colors.

This is my source for ChartPak Markers

You ought to pick up one of these if you invest in a lot of markers.


BTW, if your makers ever dry out a spot of xylene will go a long way to freshen them up.

Possibly a dumb question, but does anybody use these markers to color hackle? I am thinking specifically of partridge hackle. I realize I could dye an entire skin, but I was looking at smaller quantities and less muss and fuss. Thanks for any input.
