Default Re: Tubes Love em or hate em

I also put my vote with either Ard or Eunan. Peer pressure, peer pressure! A Jock O Dee on a tube I have a number of flies similar to tube-style flies, as well as some tubes. Any fly which trails a stinger-style hook has the same benefit, since the original argument for the tube fly was negligible hook shank so as to limit thrown hooks, if I remember correctly?

Good call Gator. Eunan has some amazing skills at the vise. I am often in awe.

Thanks Ard. If Jack won't do it, let me know and perhaps we could work something out--this of course assuming you are interested. Word of caution, I don't know that my ties can stand up to yours but I'd be willing to do this if you are game. I posted a few of my latest in the What are you Tying thread so you can see some of my work.
