Nice looking ties as always Laurie!

nrp,

basically how it works is you slide the leader/tippet material through the tube and tie the hook on at the end of the line, then insert the hook into the tag end of the tube.

Very shrimpy - love the clever use of the sunburst and orange dyed badger hackles to give the ring of central black, with the radiating color. Looks like some super flies that would work for salmon, steelhead/sea trout and I bet in the right size and on a saltwater hook would be a great flats/estuary fly....... Great job on those capes!!

Hi Hugh
The badger capes really make a big difference to the salmon patterns.
Especially on bumbles ,wind in a yellow and an orange under the blue grizzle and the halo effect is incredible.
Now working on a few more patterns once I get the batch of 40,000 hooks counted and bagged up
