    Not sure about waxes, but dyed feathers are definatly not worth the risk. I know, or rather knew of several people, that are no longer in the flyfishing/tying community due to excess contact with dyed materials & the actual process of dying materials, Laurie Finney being one.

    Maybe they didn't know the difference between dying and dyeing. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Depends on the dye that has been used, if you know that is.

    I suppose it's the 'yellow peril' that's being referred to

    Smoking, whilst working with "Chemicals", is a really,really bad habit.
