New tubes

A couple of tubes I put together last night:

Will be trying these for summer fish

could you use something like this on skagit head or you go with scandi?

Flyfishing, Jeeps, tattoos, love, rock & roll and other religious matter.

These tubes are tied on plastic, the yellow & black one being 3/4" tube, the other being a 1" tube, & both overall ~2 1/2" long.

Depending on the water, they can be cast off a floating long line, a floating long line with a sink tip of 10 t 15', or a Scandi, an AFS head, or a Skagit could also be used.

I will be tying some of these patterns on either small copper tubes ot small brass bottle tubes too.

Thanks for the positive comments

Sweet tubes! Nice colours, very fishy

They must find it difficult... those that have taken authority as the truth and not truth as the authority.

No cones, just varnished wraps

Balance? don't know about that, but they swim just fine, and the fish like 'em like this, and I've caught my share without considering balance
