Except for the lack of hooks, I like them.  I especially like the last batch ... white bellies and colored backs.

I just can't get my enthusiasm up for tube flies.

Great flies and I love the look of them on tubes.

Tube flies make good sense in saltwater, where hooks have a finite life.  I assume that's where you're using them????????   Really pretty ties!

Great flies. I miss fishing for Yellow Perch
