  1. hello, I’m from Kaliningrad, I want to ask you, do you sell materials, am I ready to pay for the parcel?

  2. Great advice as usual Davy ,like you say dyeing seems to be trial and error. I was just wondering if you start dyeing something and keep adding the same dye i.e hot orange will it change the colour to a burnt orange or will it give you a more intense shade of hot orange

  3. Hey dear Davie, can you do a video pure and about jungle cock cape's and maybe other feathers from that same bird and where you can buy it? I know its mainly for salmon and seatrout flies used but when it comes to the other feathers of the bird, i don't now or it is used, or in what flies or anything? I hope you make such a video, dear Davie. This one was as always a good video from you 🙂 Greetz Harry

  4. Thanks Davie. Been away for awhile. I just found I was unsubscribed to you again! No idea why. I have not been hanging around sabotaging my choices….very strange

  5. Mega Thx Davie ! Your videos on dying feathers & capes certainly make me feel a bit more confident in trying to attempt dying my own feathers in the very near future

  6. Davie, would it be possible to do a vid on dyeing seals fur, I've got a pile and don't want to destroy it 👌☘️🥃

  7. Imagine not reserving the pot just for dyeing materials & then putting the pot back for general use. A while later, the pot is used to prepare Sunday dinner. Oh no!

  8. Very informative – thanks Davie! It appears to be one of those things that seems like one needs to be an expert to do, but with a little gumption (and finger-crossing) any of us could do!

  9. Качество пера от этого не ухудшается?

  10. Dave, hello. May I ask you to turn on subtitles? Thank you

  11. Great video mate for dying jc cape. Thanks for sharing. Best Regards from West Virginia, Ken

  12. I’ve got a jungle cock cape that’s very split , after watching this I’m very interested in dying it so thanks for the video I will follow along and dye my cape and see how it turns out. Orange or green I like the look off most

  13. Do you dye your own rabbit skins? If you do, are those pressed also. I've dyed rabbit and mink and both curl real bad.

  14. Fluorescent, will that give off UV-light?

  15. Bonus Sunday!!! Two videos to enjoy. I don’t have the courage to attempt the dying trick yet!

  16. The big nails on the bottom of that one 😮

  17. Great video davie I'd like to do it sometime 😊

  18. It is very cool i wil dó that 👍🤜👍

  19. Another masterclass. Excellent instructions. Thanks, Davie.

  20. hi davie excellent video. im looking at dying deer hair would it be the same method for that also ?

  21. Man off many talents, cheers big yin great video as always 👍

  22. There seems to be some confusion in the comments here about so-called UV dyed materials.

    Materials dyed with 'UV dyes' or of UV colours – like 'glo-brite' and so on, do not emit UV light! They absorb invisible, short wavelength UV light – where it occurs, such as in daylight – and emit it at a longer visible wavelength, thereby seeming to glow. This is called fluorescence or, more precisely in this case, as UV-induced visible fluorescence.
    The emitted light may not be of the same wavelength (ie colour) as the material appears under non-UV light.

    Regarding the colour of jungle cock eyes, Davie will be well aware that the old Victorian originators of traditional feather wing salmon flies had different ideas to us about what was desirable. Capt Hale, in his 'How to tie Salmon flies' is very specific about this – he says 'the more black and white they are, the better. Those with sandy-coloured spots are inferior'. Kelson, in his great work on Salmon flies, does not describe them so precisely, but you will look in vain among his dozens of superb coloured illustrations for anything but pure black and white jungle cock eyes. Regardless of their attractiveness, or otherwise, to salmon, it is only later authors such as Pryce-Tannat, and later still JD Bates in the US who admit, and illustrate, the yellow to amber coloured eyes.

    Back in the 1970's I had a manager who had lived in India for many years. He showed me a hat his wife had brought back which consisted of a sort of netting cup, around which were sewn a dozen or more jungle cock capes, overlapping, and each one perfectly black and white, without a hint of any yellow or other colour. Virtually every eye was a perfect long oval, without a single split. Although his wife told me she never wore it, they steadfastly resisted all my passionate begging, generous offers, attempts to barter and so on. This was in the days when JC was almost unobtainable – things are easier now, at a cost.

    Both these lovely people are now long gone, and I had lost touch with them long before that. I often wonder what happened to that remarkable hat though. I'd have so loved to have worn it at the BFFI event!

  23. I have one jungle cock cape I paid a $100 for 5-6 years ago. I use it to make a beatle pattern you did a long long long time ago. I could not buy another just to dye it for certain flies. Love the dying video though. Is the dye a clothing die?

  24. Whats the betting he's wife now has a bright yellow dress, and maybe some lovely yellow curtains………

  25. I dyed one hot orange last year for salmon flies. It turned out okay. A friend bought one that had been dyed hot orange and it had gone wrong the eyes looked singed. Mine would probably have tuned out like that if it wasn’t for your videos Davie 😂
