Dyeing and Bleaching 6 July 2009
By J. Horrer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you plan to try your own dyeing and bleaching of furs and feathers than you need this book it will save you a lot of time and trouble and cut the learning curve down to nothing. it tells you just what you need and how to mix the dyes and how to prep the fur (like it tells you to soak the fur or feather in water for a while before dyeing, I have never read that any place else and it helped) so lots of information and tips
if I had purchased this book frist I would have save the cost on failed fur dyeing.
I rate this a 5 star must have book

A Way Through the Woods 12 Jan. 2010
By Magilla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A.K. Best, long known as one of the premier technical fly tyers, has penned a work that allows the average fly tyer, with minimal amounts of training and materials, a way of achieving necessary or needed colors in common feathers and furs used in fly tying.

Best, in his own straight forward technical way, takes the reader from step to step in the preparation, bleaching, dyeing and final processing of a number of common fly tying materials. The steps are clear and the text is laced with a number of "common sense" ideas which may not be immediately apparent to the novice (or intermediate for that matter) tyer.

A must-read for anyone going beyond the initial amateur stages of fly tying.
