'Somewhat less challenging than the rather involved Dual Tube Phly...
this is a spin off of my Phly Welding technique... I prefer and recommend Bug-Bond Original L.C.A. [light cured acrylic]...
Peeete's Welded Wide Body Tunnel Hull Pheather n' Phlash Tube Phly...

It's best to prep symetrical pheatherz and phlash that will be welded in place on each side...
turn off the fan... don't sneeeze... have 'em ready to go and the welding process will progress more smoothly...
'starting off with the tube and the soft hook holding "junction tube"...

Bug-Bond [and all L.C.A. that I have tested] adheres better when it has some texture to grab on to...
I prefer pearl Bill's Bodi Braid and it serves as the phoundation for the majority of my phlyz...

'phirst pheather welded to the tubular phoundation...


'second pheather with some Crystal Phlash welded in place...


'contrasting phinal pheather welded in place...


'encapsulated 3-D Eyez...

'bottom profile phish eye prospective...


'slight variation of the phinal pheather yields a different coloration or personality...
a heavier or lighter hook will target different layers of the water column...

FYI: Google "phly welding" for variations on the technique...

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it... don't take any wooden knickles !!!

Pete,

Great post!

I'm doing an article on tying BIG flies, and I'll most likely include a couple of your techniques. I'll probably contact you for some details and comments.

Martin

Mr. Nicolson... Thanks for the kind words! So many curious things to explore, there aren't enough hours in the day! Cheeeerz!

Martin...

I added a conehead to shift the CG forward and get deeper faster...

It was inevitable... The Tying Police phinally caught up to me...
I'm being detained for "blasphemous tying without thread" and "phly porn"...
'Charges pending...
I am now accepting cakes and pies phlavoured with philes and hack saws...

Great innovation Pete. And some nice welds.
I hope they let you out of jail for good behavior for the upcoming holidays.
It was a pleasure meeting you and watching you welding at the symposium.
Keep up the great work.

I was playin' around with a phuzzie notion phocused on the upcoming Spring Squid Convention...

'not too shabby...

when I got side-tracked by a tubular quasi Intruder idea...

'nice colors and texture but it didn't work for me...

'experienced a profound revelation moment...
'joined them together and Bada Bing... Bada Boom...
a kind'a Jurassic Squidasarus... or Squiduendo... or ???...

'left some extra tube on the schnozola so that I can still add a cone-head if this makes it all the way to Bishop's Shoal in a few months...
The tubular notion can open up some curious doors...
