Adding Color

Our Chromax™ coating accepts permanent marker ink very well. This gives you the option to add color to your Fish-Skull if you choose.x

Here are some examples:

Add red to the gill plates:

FSBasics_5_0001

The edges of the gill plates are flat allowing you to color them.

FSBasics_5_0002

I suggest you color them before you begin tying. It takes about 5 seconds to do!

FSBasics_5_0003

The red adds a touch of realism to your fly (and a nice aiming point for predatory fish)!

Color the skull to blend with materials:

FSBasics_5_0004

As an example…the addition of some simple blue lines to this Blueback Herring imitation allows the head to blend a little better with the materials.
