All I did was drive and hold the net.

Ist tube I've tied in a long time. My personal favorite, the Black and Green. Tied on a Canadian Tube Fly Co. extra rigid plastic tube. Mixed a little turquoise angel hair in with the green wing fur. It really pops in the sun along with the lateral line of mirage flashabou.  Deadly in the top 4 inches of the water column for fresh summer fish.

Although I don't fish many, I love your tube ties! Great colours! Maybe this old dog should learn a few new tricks!

Blue Charm conversion on an extra rigid plastic tube. Can't wait to drag this across the surface film of one of my favorite June pools.

Silver Hilton conversion. Couldn't get a decent picture. May try again tomorrow in natural light. I've hooked a fair few salmon on the original version of this steelhead fly.

Great looking flies Mike. I love the look of these Scandinavian tunes, they just look like fish magnets.
