Swap Great Lakes Steelhead Fly Swap Beginner to Expert join in have fun

Mine got in the mail yesterday and should be to you in a couple of days. I tied a tube fly version of the spring creek special in olive with a size 6 tube fly hook and a conehead. It's been effective out here for many different species and hopefully should work well in the Great Lakes. I forgot to take a pic, but will tie a bunch more and take a pic in next few days.

Bill :cool:

Glad you like them!

Very easy, basically this pattern on a tube with a cone head instead of a tungsten bead. If I could have found a tungsten bead to fit the tube, I might have used it, but since the tube weighs less than a hook, it should ride / jig fine.

http://www.washingtonflyfishing.com/faq/idx/16/080/article/The_Spring_Creek_Special.html

Hook: 5263BL Size 8 2XL
Bead: Black Tungsten 5/32
Tail: Rabbit Strip the Length of the hook shank
Body: Rabbit dubbing brush, change density of brush for more or less buoyancy

I used HMH tubing, small, and the corresponding junction tubing and a size 6 straight eye tube fly hook. I fished a black one today and it looked great in the water!!

The trick is the dubbing brush, since you remove the hide from the rabbit or whatever fur you choose to use.

I'll take a pic of the black one, unless you want to post a pic of the ones I sent in.
