Just was wondering if any one out there tie pike flys on tubes. I do and it works pretty good they dont get chewed up as much. And if you use a spey rod you can make some good sized ones Thanks Jim

Jim, I don't tie my pike flies on tubes but I know a few folks who do. They don't do it for the durability; rather, they do it for the advantage in fighting the fish (i.e., the fish has less leverage).

Something to consider, though....thanks for you input. :)
