Fly tying with Jello

Feathers dyed with Jello, saltwater fly fishing, fly tying, delaware, sussex county

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 . . .
