This is a simple way of tying many types of tubeflies.
When tying this way I usually tie on short tubes like the
Loop bottelneck, Slipstream 1/2 or 3/4 inch coppertubes, ect.There is notting
wrong in tying them on regular short plastic tubes if the rivers you fish
don`t allow weighted flies.
The wing materials i use for these kind of flies are mainly fox,
silverfox and tempeldog. They give the fly the right volume and create
lots of movement. For my salmon flies i like using metz or keough
special dyed hen saddles.

Tying instructions:
1.Start of by applying thread half way up the cone.
2.Tie in one length of orange tempeldog pointing forward,
also tie in some strands of crayfish orange angel hair.
Tie in another clump of orange tempeldog a bit shorter than the first.
3.Fold it backwards and fasten it whit a couple of thread wraps.
4.Tie in and wind the orange hackle.
5. Tie in a fairly large clump of fiery brown fox as in step 2, and a strand of
hot orange mirage flash, and double it.
6.Fold half of the clump backwards and fasten with a couple of wraps.
7.Tie in and wind a black hackle.
8.Fold the rest of the fiery brown hair backwards, and fasten it.
9.Tie in some black tempeldog in the regular way. Top of the wing with
peacock angel hair.

Happy tying! =0)

Fantastic step-by-step Anders! I just got some loop bottle tubes and was wondering what to tie on them. I will have to give this one a try.
