Colton, tube flies...you know body of the fly is surrounding the tube. Tippet passes through tube from front to back. Hook tied to the back. Benefits are in hooked fish don't shred flies because tubes can go up the leader. You can use a smaller hook which is better for the fish and shorter shanks which are tougher to lever out by the fish. Hooks get dull, you change them but the fly is still okay to use. How is this novice doing expaining tube flies?
tonight's magic numbers are 495 and 99% so i guess ill try them out. Jerry will you please put my down for 5 dollars, and that makes the new numbers 500 and 100% i have a big book on tube and hair wing flies for salmon that i don't think i've even opened so I'll probably go flip through that now and pic some that i like. my next question is how do you store them if there is no point to stick in the foam?
Colton, to store them you simply put them in a small plano box with dividers. They do sell a tubeflybox though. You can even put the hooks in them (if you use junction tubing) and put them into a foam box as well. I'm getting ready for my son's party, but let me go through the list again and reverify. I may have my customer call, since her supplier has not called me back yet on shipping costs. The final cost coming in dictates how much more I'll have to add to the price (or subtract from the footage).
