Pete,

Excellent flies in your latest batch! Love your tubez!

And yes, the Eurohackles are fine feathers for large streamers and saltwater flies. And great for the Abrames style flies.

Martin

Apologies if the direct link is not acceptable...
If you go to youtube.com and search for "dual tube" you will find a 2:30 minute sequential done by Craig at HMH...

No problem with the link. Excellent little slide show, which shows nicely what the dual tube is.

Thanks

Martin

an unsolicited personal shameless HMH promotion...
there I wuzzz...
For years I've been a big fan of my antique HMH Standard Vise and the Premium Tube Tool...
well...
After an enjoyable telephonic visit with the Right Honourable Proprietor and ManAboutTown John Albright, I decided it was time to try the HMH Tube Vise Converter...
and now...
I've drank the kool-aid, tied some flyz, and been resoundingly CONVERTED!
NO REGRETS...NO WORRIES!
Unlike the quite "universal" HMH Tube Tool, the TUBE CONVERTER replaces the interchangeable HMH jaws...'takes all of about 30 seconds...
This well thought out device holds the small pre-cut tubez with attached junction tube NICELY...and rounds out an already brilliant vise design...
It will also hold the large 1/8" rigid tubes but without the junction tube or the large mandrel for added support/stiffness...
The small tubes are prefectly suited for this device since a section of junction material can be added prior to any tying...
The CONVERTER makes crankin' out my moderately sized saltwater insinuations a piece-of-cake...
WICKED AWESOME!

Pete,

As always amazing flies from your hands!
And thanks for your opinion on the HMH vise.

Martin

Thanks Martin...
(Approachin' 10K views...Who woulda' thunk?!)
In an attempt to bring the centre of gravity slightly forward on this single tube version, I wrapped in some added ballast way up front under the eyez...
The head was finished with Tuffleye acrylic...I hear that there is a "soft" clear version in the works...SIGN ME UP!
With a 3/0 Signature Series Tarpon hook, the end result was a nice swimming action in the Orvus Hydrodynamic Fly Drowning Simulation tank...
Plumps up nicely and moves even when it's standin' still...looked goodtome...
The ballast procedure was a lot less involved and quicker than my DualTube alternative...
The Tube Fly Converter and Tuffleye continue to impress...
Anywayz...
A Striped Focus Group will get to judge and decide...none too soon!
