Understanding the Turmoil of Tube Flies - The concept of tube flies is fairly well known, but we still get questions about the basic ideas as well as some of the new tube systems. This theme tries to answer them. - Global FlyFisher

Jody,

What you see is what you get:
- A lined Bidoz aluminum tube, 15mm
- Black tying thread 6/0
- A short purple wing of Arctic fox
- A grizzly hen hackle

You can vary the color of the wing. A favorite of mine is the Orange Inkspot.
Fish it with a piece of plastic tube and a very small treble hook.

Simple as that

Martin
