Tubefly – more play than for fishing

leave a comment »

I have been away from the vise for sometime and been noodling in my head this idea of a Snaelda Shrimp on a tube fly.  It took me 4 goes to get what I wanted.

I am not sure I will ever fish it, but it was something I wanted to create.

What is  the recipe, in order of tie in on a black tube using black Danville Flymaster 6/0 thread:

  • Polar Bear
  • Krystal Flash – White Glow in the Dark x2
  • Yellow, Orange and Black Schlappen feathers with most fibers stripped off, leaving just the tips (as feelers)
  • Mono-eyes on a stick.
  • Yellow, Orange and Black Schlappen collars (could be thinner).
  • Silver Veniard Tinsel – Medium.
  • Thread Body.
  • Veniard Varnish – 6 coats.
