Charlie did up a tube version of the weamer pattern so I had to have a go at doing my own tube version.

This version uses very light tan Megahair which was the original wing material for the first two experimental weamers that I had tied.

I find that I tie a larger fly when doing tubes. We'll see how well the larger tie works.

I'll be trimming off the front end of the tube as soon as the glue dries.

I hope the tube version reduces the short take problem that the original suffers from.

Very nice Peter! :smokin:

With spring at our door the bigger flies should work well, high water and aggressive fish. Let us know when you get some fish on that puppy.
