    Sorry Roderick, private joke, welcome! Since you're new here, how about a few words about yourself?

    You wil first need to tell us wat colour you intend to use as the base colour, i.e. what is the colour of the hackel that you are trying to get olive?

    I still don't know squat about the great catch No info nor pics.....

    I personally don't dye natural items.It just add steps to everything.Rather buy already dyed goodies I say.

    What's to tell? I live in Durban, a medium cast to to the 'berg, Notties or Kamberg. I dabble in the salt but prefer the evirons
    in which my speckled friends abide. I am happily retired from being a desk jockey. I have fished all my life, from coarse, to bass to the fly.

    Hi Roderick,

    Where have you tried in Durban for hackle, and what sort of hackle are you looking for ? Dry fly, strung neck hackle etc etc ?

    Hi Rod

    Welcome to the forum - have you tried buying your materials online? I'm not sure what the tackle shops are like in Durbs but I know that a lot of the coastal guys struggle with good tying supplies. Up here on the reef we are a bit luckier with a number of well stocked dealers.

    My advice is to try Frotnier they have one of the better ranges locally. If you need more than what they have you'll probably have to look abroad. They are also pretty good about getting any stock that they don't have, you might have to be patient for a week or two thoug.
