Enough lurkin' for me...NICE SITE!
Greetings from the PharSide (of the CapeCod canal)...
I've been playing around with large Tube Phlyz that may be of interest...
Stripers like 'em but toothy Blues abuse 'em...

Thanks for the kind words...
FYI...
There is a short second junction tube tyed/epoxied into the head for better balance and a more natural dead drift...my hook forward DualTube design is a bit of an arts/crafts epoxy project so I tend not to use them when there are abusive toothy critters cruisin' for trouble...
Similar in swimming appearance to large flatwings but with an epoxy head, BIG eyez, and interchangeable hooks (heavy=deep / light=shallow)...

How's the Canal? I guess I can say that I grew up hunting and fishing on The Cape. I use to walk The Cape side of the canal from the Sagamore to the Bourne with a shotgun, hunting upland game. Don't think I could do that now and stay out of jail. Caught a lot of salters in Scorton Creek and the Mashpee River in the Fall. You do any of that kind of fishing. And Santuit Pond was the best bass pond in the state. But of course the stripers were the main line. Nothing like it.

...perhaps the kind "hall monitor" will fix and/or deep-six the inadvertent hickup?!

Anyway...
Esox...Yesterdaze Canal bears no resemblance to the bi-polar current edition!
After dark, a shot gun would probably enhance safe passage but would spawn a grievance from the armed predators who would otherwise be breaking into your parked vehicle...
The Cape kettle ponds produce well year around but the seasonal transient headliners wear stripes and winter in warmer waters...So it goes!

When I come up with something that looks promising, it goes in my R&D prototype box.
When the Striped focus group gives a good review, more of the same are tyed...
Too bad quality long neck hackles are getting so challenging to come by... Mad
FreeStyle tying can lead to creative discoveries! Wink

G'day from Australia. This is my first post on this site.
I've been a fly fisho & tier for many years, learnt to fish as soon as I could walk.
In Australia tube flies are rarely seen and I don't know of anyone who ties them so, I thought I'd give it a go. I have the required gadgets to commence tying but am inexperienced in the commencing & finishing process when cone heads are used. Do I glue the cone heads on?
With the drought in Australia many of our inland water ways have all but dried up and the Trout have suffered. So, we are getting more & more into saltwater flyfishing. Tube flies look like a great way to go for saltwater.
With copper tubing is it always necessary to jam plastic tubing inside & if so is it glued in?
This is a great forum and an ideal place to pick up tips & new ideas.
Regards
Warren.

Warren,

Regarding your tube fly questions:

Warren Rankin wrote:

Nope. The easiest way is to use a "liner"- a thin inner plastic tube that runs through the outer tube. When the fly is done, you run the inner tube through the cone and the fly and melt it in both ends. That will keep the cone in place. You can add glue, but it is usually not necessary.

Warren Rankin wrote:

Nope again. Same technique - just without the cone. Run a thin liner through the copper tube and melt a collar in both ends, before or after you have tied the fly depending on temper - and the danger of the fly catching fire...

I am currently working on a large tube fly theme and all these questions (and many, many more) will be answered and illustrated. Here is a sample showing your coned fly:



I expect this theme to be ready within a week or so.

Martin
