I wanted to tie The Three Amigos in three different colors and I wanted the colors to have a nice blend. Here is a step by step turorial. I hope it all makes sens. Sometimes I get rather nerdie when It gets to flytying, but I know I am not the only one and some of you will love this.
I can`t say how much I like sitting down for hours and hours and just fiddling with mixing diffrent colors. I do think the colors turned out great. The beads I use is a 3.4 mm tungsten bead and tied on a smal size 6 hook and I use kevlar thread. Let me take you thru the steps. Enjoy. PS. - It`s all just seal-fur - buy the colors here
