Since last year i was flyfishing for Coho i was nailing them good on Blue christmas trees, also in the past got them good on blue blades as well so this got me thinking while chucking roe for coho i decided to buy this stuff and use it on my skeins of red spring roe i recently got. Not sure if it will work but its worth a try.

The stuff i got is called "BAD AZZ BAIT DYE" By Procure ! This stuff is a bit pricy 4oz jar for $21 Bucks, this stuff is very potent just a tiny sprinkle of this stuff turned the Roe blue Instantly



The Roe - I dyed it this colour then put them in a plastic container full of borax to do a borax cure on it
I only tried it on 2 skeins to see if it works that way i didnt waist the rest of my roe




Worth a try i guess, I got lots of roe that i can afford to try this on

:peace:

Re: Roe - Trying something different

Bet you it will work too :thumbup: I also had great luck last year on a massive blue kitimat spoon. The christmas tree and coho blue flies work wonders too. I also tried blue wool a few years back and beleive me it hook more than coho (whites love it and so do chums). Let us know how it goes, I found a great spot for springs/coho today by accident so I might be going there tomorrow for some spoon/fly chucking. :happy:

Re: Roe - Trying something different

if you want to keep trying other different colors, you can get a pack of Pro Cure Natural and just mix whatever color of dye you want in with it. This way you get the curing power of Pro Cure along with the color of eggs you want. Just comething different than straight dyeing the eggs first and covering with Borax. I have been doing this for a while now and mixing some of the other colors for different looking bait.

Re: Roe - Trying something different

I would like to know if those trying blue or purple colors, whether it be yarn,spinners, spoons, etc. are having any better luck with these colors when the water clarity is poor.

As many of you probably know, purple, blue, and greens are the last colors to be filtered out by the light spectrum. I.E. the fish see these colors in dirty or colored and deep water when oranage and red will appear black and go unnoticed by the fish.

I would appreciate anyones input with their experiences on this subject.

Re: Roe - Trying something different

I use blue spinners and they really seem to work well. It is just unfortunate that they are really hard to find.

I do make my own spinners, and I always glue a bit of blue wool on it. It is a laborious thing to do, but it works ;)

Re: Roe - Trying something different

OH OH everyone stay away from BLUE. :happy:

hmmmmmm bluesteele????? the name sort of gives it away.

Seriously guys BLUE to me is the bomb. Springs, Coho,Rainbow,Bulltrout and last but deadliest

STEELHEAD.

I first started to use blue back in 95 on the gold river it was my own fly that is all blue and it was deadly.
Still use the same fly today same luck. Also have used blue fox spinners with good results.

Anyhow Fishfreak let us know how it works for you. I am especially curious as to it's effect with steelhead???

Blue fox spinners. Its my go to for coho on spinners. Also like someone already mentioned blue wool works very well all alone.
I know blue wool works well. The spinners I am talking about where the ones that are colorado blades with blue on them. There was one store that carried them but no longer does. Fortunatly for me I bought the last ones they had so I still have a few :thumbup:

Re: Roe - Trying something different

Try taking a colorado blade and heating it up with a Tiger torch, or small jet ligher. After the blade goes red hot, dunk it in a cup of cold water.. The outcome is that gas slick look to your blade, Works very well for coho and steelies.
