Nice work Yooper, the wing looks great, it'll swim really good. Im a big fan of that colour combo too!!!

Is it just me or has there been a "Tube revolution" on SP?

hook rigging?

nice tye Yooper.
Wondering how you are rigging it?
With a hook stuck into the rear of the main body tubing/junction tubing?
... or on a separate small trailing piece of tubing as Frodin suggests for some of his flies?

Hey man, good question. A few Scandi guys I know (one who has fished the Skeena system for 30 years) suggested the ‘free swing junction’ method. I’m not sure if that is what Frodin is suggesting, could be. It’s probably the strongest hook holding power of any rig. Completely free swing yet rides in line with the tube. And when you set the hook, it’s a direct drive on the hook point. Where this method really shines is where you have to use barbless hooks. The loop knot method (whether intruders or tubes) does not stick nearly as deep. And just having the hook jammed into some junction doesn’t either. Although, if the junction tubing is soft enough that the hook slides right out upon hook up then I suppose it’s close to the same strength, but, you still do not have the free swinging.

Essentially, it’s like this:
1. Fly over line
2. Small piece of junction (size is dependent on hook eye)
3. Tie line to hook
4. Slide junction over hook eye (should be snug)
5. Do not slide junction back over tube (in fact, it shouldn’t even fit over tube unless it’s made for 2/0 hooks for Chinook or saltwater)

It will ride in line and hook point down on the swing and has a very effective hook holding power upon hook set
