MMM - more U Tubes

Using sequentially layered marabou this time:













...including the use of a buffering bead to hold the stinger loop at the right distance

Hope you like

Full SBS to follow later

Tubes

Nice!
I see you use a buffering bead to hold the stinger loop at the right distance.
Interesting.
Is there a reason why you don't use a silicon tube to hold the stinger loop at the right distance? This means one knott less.

My best memories are not too old!!

No, the only knot is the surgeon's loop knot to make the loop, so the hook is held by the loop without additional knots.

the 'flexibility' of the surgeon's loop with the bead is that, within certain limits, you can drop the stinger hook position back as far as you want, depending on the overall length of the tie.

The tubes in these cases are only 3/4", whereas the overall tie length is 3", so using junction tubing would take the hook to well within the fly, and not act as a rear 'stinger'

rear 'stinger'

""using junction tubing would take the hook to well within the fly, and not act as a rear 'stinger'"
I'll keep this in mind!
Thanx for the explanation

Great looking tubes Mike! I like the buffering bead idea too! I'll be watching for that SBS.

Thanks for putting them up!

Awesome, what are you using for the tippet - to hold the hook. I am suspecting some stiff around 12lb?

Thanks for all the positive comments - I'll be tying some more of these!

Tippet is Yo Zuri hybrid 20lb - bigger diameter & shows up better for pics!
