Flies for fishing deep. Not my ususal kind of flies, but sometimes you need weight.
I usually use ordinary flies tied on hooks. Not too heavy, but ever so often with a bit of weight on to get them down. Eyes, wire, copper or whatever suits the pattern.
But my flies are rarely that bright, and when I dug into my stash of rubber legs I found some really nice brown and black ones, that would go well with a simple black fly.
This time I used the Pro tube system and combined a Flexitube with a rear weight and a tungsten cone from German Wurm. That makes a really heavy fly, which will definitely dive, and hopefully produce some fish.
I hope to be able to launch my pontoon boat in the current this coming weekend, and test these new contraptions. I will have to dig out a sinking line, but I may have one or two lying around somewhere.
I will report back if I have any success.
