Fly tying with Jello

Written in 2015, but thought we would share this again.  Ever use Jello to dye feathers?

Yup, you read that correctly.  Now I am sure you are thinking,
you can't even glue snot to Jello, much less tie it up or put it on a hook.  So how do you tie flies with Jello?  Shawn Rakes showed me a book this Saturday (2015) at the Saltwater Fly Anglers of Delaware's fly tie Saturday meeting, of feathers that are dyed with ... wait for it .. Jello.  I know people have started dying their hair with Jello to get those crazy . . .
