Tube Flies: Part 2

This is my second installment of the "Tube Flies" series of fly tying tutorials.

The fly tied is a Woolly Bugger, intended to show that a variety of patterns can be created when tying tube flies. If you are experienced in this style of tying, please be sure to mention your own thoughts, techniques, and tips in the "Comments" section below.

Tying Tube Flies: Part 1

Tube flies are becoming more and more popular in fly fishing, and for a variety of species. I knew that it was time to become introduced to this style, and was even more convinced when reading two articles in the April-May 2014 issue of "Fly Fisherman." Those articles, written by Tom Rosenbauer and April Vokey, really broke everything down, plus gave great insight towards the many directions tube flies can be taken. Moving forward, I was hooked, and am now sharing my own thoughts in this series, "Tube Flies."
