    I would be interested for about 50 foot at that price.

    Hope all is well.

    Best

    Hey Jerry. I am also interested in some tubing.

    You can also put me down on the list of micro and large tubing if you are trying to find people to go in on other sizes.

    Ok, I won't know exact price until I get the sample out and back. Will let you know. It will be cheaper then buying the HMH. So figured if you want it, buy up your lifetime supply. LOL.

    If anyone wants 100 feet of the 1/8 stuff I have two extra rolls, $15 each, I'll even pay for shipping.

    Oh, I should add this. These are extruded in straight lengths. So you don't have to heat to unwind or anything. They extrude them and cut them off in 3' lengths.

    Jerry put me down on your list. I'm in for 100' or what $80-100 will get me. PM me with the price when you know and when/where to send my payment. Thanks.

    Ok, will do. Guess it takes awhile. Has to be done the snailmail way. LOL. She has my sample of the small tubing. She said she was going to try and get the sample put together and sent out either this coming week or first of next. So will be a couple weeks out before I know anything.

    Jerry,

    I am not sure if this is the exact stuff you are looking for, but here's a link to some 3/16 plastic tubing.

    http://www.onlinemetals.com/merchant.cfm?pid=15161&step=4&showunits=inches&id=1103&top_cat=181

    I will called an order, they are near Ballard.

    PS, this particular material has a specific gravity of .98, and if I remember those old lessons, water is 1.0 so it would be neutral boyant. This stuff is cream colored, but the tygon stuff is clear with a SG of 1.2. Slighting heavy. http://www.onlinemetals.com/merchant.cfm?id=1093&step=2

    Both come in .0625 or 3/16

    That's not the same stuff. Can get that as well from her. This stuff is a bit more rigid, and exactly like the HMH stuff. That stuff is for snaking tubing through areas usually (at least for her guages it is). She buys those by the coil, but this other stuff is extruded in straight lengths since it's a bit more rigid then that stuff. This stuff is actually smaller in diameter. The stuff you are showing is twice the diameter of this stuff. Stuff I'm trying to get is the same as the HMH small tubing, which is 3/32. Great for tying smaller steelhead flies. Some tied on the larger tubing make a pretty big profile. Yours would be a bit larger since it's 3/16 and the large tubing is 1/8th.

    Ok, got the quote. It's gonna be 3 cents a foot. Will be cut in 8' lengths. I have to find out how much the cost of shipping will be to my customer. I can cut them down to easier to transport lengths. I'm guestimating it'll rough out to maybe 5 cents a foot maybe. This will be a heavy box coming in. But just need to make sure everyone is on board, and willing to pay. I'll get the exact cost including shipping. She totally forgot about that, so once I hear back will let you know.

    Well, I was figuring more of meetup. And a relay for those who aren't nearby. Then those too far away could ship (those wanting the smaller amounts).

    Sounds like a good idea. Still appreciate all you efforts!
    Pass along some tying materials over a few beers and stories?? Good chance to meet a few of you all...
