Interesting. I can't say I've ever seen a skunk on a tube. Well done Serge.

Looks real good on a tube. I'm so over with tube-flies ... still - I think your use of junction tubbing as a green butt is a very nifty adaption.

Skunk : Recommend to add black under the white in the wing.

Thank you I will try this in the next one....from looking at pics the wing looked all white to me and body/hackle was black. Ill try it with a black first wing.

PS - why over with the tubes? Tubes rock!
