Anyone know of a great tube kit?
Each year I try something new, and although I've dabbled with tube flies in the past, I think that this upcoming season my challenge will be to crack the spring-run Atlantic Salmon code using just tube flies.
I've already tied a bunch on plastic tubing, but am looking to expand into brass/copper, variations on junctions and would tend to lean toward double-point hooks.
Been scouring through the big sites and my local online retailers looking for a suitable kit bundle of varied tubing (metals/plastics/colors/sizes) but am coming up short. I don't need any mandrels or vice adapters, which alot of the kits include, and I'm not big on cone-heads, beads, or spinners.
Does anyone know of a nice kit that has copious amounts of variety just in tubing, junctions, liners, without all the accessories? I'm willing to spend, but just don't want all the extras to clutter the already-cluttered trying arsenal.
Thanks in advance for any guidance you may offer!
