A place where we can learn to use the basic components, techniques, and materials.
To rig a tube fly, simply thread the tippet through the tube, then tie it to your hook of choice.
Snug the hook eye into the rear of the tube, and you're ready to catch fish.
- Endless hook options (primarily short shank) fresh, saltwater, single, double, treble with fine, standard or extra strong wire diameters.
- Less hook leverage with shorter shank hooks when fighting fish.
- Fly slides up leader during the fight...away from sharp teeth, so your flies last longer!
- Broken or dull hooks are easily replaced to continue fishing the same fly
- Use metal tube bodies, cones, beads, or simply wrap lead/tungsten to adjust sink rates of flies.
- Tube flies can be all inclusive, or they can be made in separate sections so they can be stacked to build the finished fly.
- Fly sections are heads and bodies which are different colors and weights. To build a longer fly add two bodies.
