    Sooty Olive is one of my favourite colours for top of the water fishing. That is a cracking muddler Jimmy.
    Do you dye your own feathers? I want to dye a half saddle sooty olive and wondered what the dye blend was.

    This one is a keeper to my eyes. Nicely done sir.
    Sooty Olive is another shade that I am still having issues with in the dye pot...

    Thanks Rich, I do dye much of my own stuff yes ,increasingly so nowadays.Only the shoulder hackle on this one though.My good friend Alex Ferguson gave me the seal fur and I bought a superb saddle from Sam McGowan..I reckon it was originally a furnace which he dyed sooty for me. As you will undoubtedly already know,the material you start off with has a huge bearing on the final result..

    Thanks Darwin...I’m no expert but I managed to get a passable sooty on that white mallard by using a 5-2 mix of veniards olive dun and jacquard jet black.

    Cheers. Olive dun is a new one to me, you did a good job with it.
    My best success on feathers was medium or dark olive over dyed with olive brown and a touch of black. For dubbing I blend different colours and try to get close to Frankie McPhillips. All still works in progress.
