Tubes

Here are 4 tubes I tied and I am looking for some pointers. The first, a Vimu is 4-1/2" long whereas the 2nd and 3rd with braid tubes are 2-1/2" long. The last one, a shrimp, I definitely want to do again with half the amount of hair, I think it is way too bulky. Thanks!

Nice work on these tubes. They will all swim well and no doubt work well too.

I really like how you tapered those wings, that can be a challenge and your tapers are really good. A good taper will make the wing swim well.

I may go sparser on number 1 (top left corner), the wing collapses in current and you don't need that much material. When I build the wing, I also try to make the first wing wrap around the tube more, so the taper is also horizontal one, if that makes sense.

Give them a swim and hang tight!

Nice job......as Serge said, very nice wing taper

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
