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.


Overview colors step 1.

Here you can se all the colors I have been using to make "The Three Amigos" basecolors. Ginger Ale, Fiery Brown, Magenta, Drak Olive, Black and Pruple.

No. 2 = 20% Magenta. 80% Dark Olive.

No. 1 = 20% Dark olive. 60% Black. 20% Purple.
