Pete,

Another great pattern and thanks for posting thos grest step-by-steps. They show your dual tube concept very clearly.

One question: the shape of the fly on the last picture... is that purely the moist fly or do you use anything to get the hairs permanently into that shape?
I would imagine that the first time the fly hits the water, the hairs spread out to their natural shape as its seen in the first pictures in the tying steps.

Martin

G'day Martin...
Thanks for the kind words...
When the winds kick up and drives me off the water, I'll retreat to my tying bunker for some creative "therapy"...
This sort'a stuff keeps me busy and out'a trouble...
As usual, your keen observations are spot on...
After a test drowning in the tub and a hot water rinse, as the fly dries the tear-drop shape gently sets into the natural fibers...it holds this aesthetic pose until hydro-dynamic pressure takes over...
Although the gentle "training" helps slightly to maintain the desired profile and results in a pleasing photo op...with a dead drift, the material splays out somewhat...add some current and the fuselage narrows down a bit as the material steam lines...
A strip-pause-strip insinuates undulating life and gives it "the LOOK"...weshallsee...the fish decide!
Cheers
ps
What with the quick Tuffleye BlueLight cure I've started "spot welding" material on as I go...
The above head shots depict a close-up view of thread-less tying (fly welding?!)...
I haven't seen this technique used before...["famous last words"]...WORKS FOR ME!

'an ongoing exercise in buck tail management, colour blending, modified tubular techniques, Tuffleye FLEX application, and a nagging phuzzie notion...
'same basic idea as earlier... "main tube" on top... "junction tube" on the bottom...

I enjoy curious quality tools that work...
Eumer makes a simple but effective Tube Fly Tool... in two sizes...
The LARGE worked nicely with my HMH 1/8" tubes [large]...
To better downsize my Dual Tube Phlyz notion, the SMALL is well suited to hold 3/32" / 1mm tubes...
When paired with my Nor-Vise, the result is a fly lathe...
Go phigure!?

'yet another shameless photo sequence...
'too windy to be outside + idle handz = devil's workshop...!

das Nor-Vise... my Phly Lathe... + Eurmer Tube Fly Tool = zoom zoom !!!
FYI... a 1mm material tube and a larger 1/8" hook / junction tube to better accommodate larger salt water hook eyez...
Phly Welding mit BugBond Original Formula... BRILLIANT!

Pete,

Another great series, and a really nice looking dual tube! It is a great concept for building large flies!

Martin
