Thought I would post up a pictures of some classic atlantic salmon tubes, my dad picked these up in Scotland back in the early 1970s. They were from Farlows as you can see on the packaging they are very simple tubes but have been highly effective over the years. I use them in Iceland and in the clear rivers these flies are great. I have made some copies (the flies on the right) and have added a hole to turn them into hitch tubes. I have used these as well over the years and found them to work quite well, the tubes can be fished either hitched or regular with the line through the front of the tube. One of the flies shown has some leader material threaded through the hitch hole. Thought I would share with the atlantic salmon anglers I'm sure these would work in Canada as well.
