I have had bad luck with weighted plastic tube flies. Must be my crap casting, but I end up breaking the tubes. Anyone have this experience or how to avoid it.

Can't you use brass tubes for the weighted tube flys?

I am just learning to tie on tubes and so far can only tie epoxy head streamers and pencil poppers, so I am curious also with winter coming and shrimp patterns maybe getting hot on the beach.

I like to use aluminum tubes, it offset the buoyancy materials and easy to cast...I mainly use the sinktips to adjust the desired depth.

HMH tubes were famous for breaking in cold water. They claim to have fixed the issue, but I wont go back. I've never had problems with Froden or Eumer.

Maybe thats my problem. I think I've only used HMH tubes. I havent used aluminum or copper tubes much cuz I thought the how idea was to use simple low cost plastic.
