GH tube SBS

Tying on tube is very simple when you follow few simple rules.

First melt plastic lining immediately from two side. simply brilliant idea .
It significantly reduce size of hed
Tube mini 6mm.

First hackle. It support wing. If you like 2 or 3 hackles next you put between layer of fox . with last normally the softest on top

Each bunch of fox has to be longer than previous one. They have to be on tube one above another (like sandwich) . Not one after another!
On photo it is visible.

In this fly I add only 4 strands of Angel hair. But in bigger flies we can add more between bunches of fox.

Top layer of fox and jc

One remark more. Fish normally see flies from bottom it is why is good to distribute bunch of hairs by thumb’s nail.
After fixing new bunch of hairs by 2-3 turns of thread you have to distribute it around tube. Just on something like 40-50% of surface.
Such a fly is also much more durable

In fact it is more difficult to explain it than to do.
Just push hairs by nail under thread and go left right if necessary again and secure hairs by few turns more.
To made it visible I used material enough for few flies
