Discussion in 'Fly Swaps' started by Ron Eagle Elk, Jun 8, 2004.

  1. I must confess, I got my share of the flies when they were mailed out. Nicely tied everyone. We're going out in the morning before the bikini hatch starts to test a few of these.

    I'm signing up for the new beginners swap. Anyone else?

  2. Tube fly help........

    Slide the fly on your tippet.........Tie a 2 ought hook on below................cast for steelies............Hang on!!!!!!!
  3. Which end is the front? Do you rig it to work like a reversed spider, or will that put the whip-finish in harm's way? My guess is that the tube fly will slide up the tippet and avoid the fish teeth.
    I'll bet it would work well on Coho in the estuaries.

  4. Jimbo, The feathers will point away from the front. Your absolutely right, the tube slides up the tippet to avoid those teeth. It is a popular style of fly for salmon, besides those metal heads. Works well for Musky and Pike too if you use a wire leader.

  5. Nice collection of flies! I'm going out tonight for some "testing".

    Thanks again to Ron for hosting...
