Pete,

As always a great fly construction from your hands! And excellent picture to show the method.

The Dual tube system is ingenious, and perfect for really large flies like large saltwater flies or pike flies. I have tied a few myself and been pretty pleased with the result even though none have been nearly as elegant as yours.

Pete,

More goodies from your vices (and I know you have several!).

I fooled around with some Bug-Bond the other day (light curing stuff), and man! That's gonna revive my epoxy craze from years back! So easy to use, no waste and great results.

I'm definitely gonna weld some flies and try that technique one of these days. I just have to order more of the stuff since I'm using it faster than I expected.

Regarding fly shows there are essentially two large ones: Fly Fair in the Netherlands and the Danish Fly Festival here in Denmark. The Brits also have some shows, but none are as large or fly fishing exclusively as far as I know. The two shows alternate. Next year will be in the Netherlands (Hopefully. I haven't seen it announced yet) and the year after that in Denmark.
