First Tubes

Well I've stayed away from tying any sort of tube until last week. Was reading one of Juri's articles and decided to pick up a 10 pack of long range tubes. Here's the results. Disregard the heads - I need to work on my tube burning skills. I think I'll be picking up some more. These stacked hair wings just feel right on the bottle tubes. Thanks for looking.

Those will hunt

I like that style of wing. I will have to tie some up for winter work.

Beautiful work!! Love the high tie style.

I have found, recently, that it is a good move on the flyfisherman's part to invest in a shed, garage or any other structure that is not connected to the main living quarters. Primarily as a respite, but also to quell any beatings, both verbal and physical that come from the feminine co-inhabitor. This, after finding dye, waxes and animal bi-products littered all over the kitchen, as well as the ceiling. A word to the wise.........don't use the good pots. -Myself

Great start to your tube tying.Good proportions,the head deal will come with practice.

All lovely ties, and many of mine will have heads of similar proportions, even after tying these for years, but I comfort myself by applying a little logic - coneheads have large heads & they look good & catch fish, so the large thread heads are merely conehead 'lites'!!
