Searching for the proper shade of Skwolive (skwalas are a late winter-early spring stonefly in the wester U.S.); this is a bit rich, not the dirty motor oil I was intending and it didn’t dye to the roots. I’ll give it a shot on deer and pronghorn hair.

hook - WFC Model 6 #8
thread - Danville Flat Wax yellow
shuck - Congo Hair black
body - caribou dyed brown olive (1 Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange, 1 Tsp Rit Dark Green, 1/4 Tsp Rit Black/1 cup water)
wing - Congo Hair dark grey
shoulder - pheasant rump dyed brown)
collar/head - caribou dyed brown olive

Regards,
Scott
